A civil lawsuit may be filed if a person (Plaintiff) has suffered an injury or loss due to the wrongdoing of another person or entity (Defendant). The Plaintiff may request that the Court orders the Defendant to pay the Plaintiff in order to compensate for the loss (or make the Plaintiff whole). 

In civil matters, the parties may agree to or be ordered to attend mediation or arbitration to settle their dispute. Those who choose to participate in mediation or arbitration reap the benefits, some of which include:  settling the dispute quicker, protecting their privacy (no court record of negotiation discussions), and saving a significant amount of money.
