Importance of the Civil Justice System

The civil justice system ensures all people the right to bring individual grievances or complaints before an independent court. A person can file grievances against another person, a company, or even the government. The system allows both parties a fair opportunity to share their side of the story before a judge or jury. It’s designed to hold wrongdoers accountable and can ensure compensation for someone injured due to misconduct. What’s most important to know about our civil justice system is this: It gives everyone a fair chance.
