Civil litigation is commenced when two or more parties wants to use the Court as the forum to resolve their legal disputes. It could either be an individual suit or a class action.

An Individual Suite generally involves one or more parties seeking monetary damages or the specific performance of actions by another party. Whether you are making a claim of this type or defending against one, HTW Law can provide you with invaluable advice on your options and how to obtain the outcome you are seeking.

Usually you are required to commence a legal proceeding within 2 years after the event requiring court interference transcribed, or you are statutory barred from doing so. However, it is not always the case. For instance, the statutory limitation for real estate transaction is 10 years. If you think you have a claim against another party, you are advised to seek legal advice immediately before the matter is statutory barred from commencing. And if you got sued, you are advised to seek legal advice before filing a reply or respond, because a statutory limitations defence must be pleaded in the statement of defence.

What is Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice covers the injuries caused by the negligence of medical professionals. The most typical types of medical malpractice are as follow:


Misdiagnosis and delayed diagnosis


A misdiagnosis describes a situation when your doctor tells you that you have some illness or condition, but it's incorrect. When an illness is misdiagnosed, or symptoms of an illness are overlooked leading to a delay in diagnosis. This can cause delayed treatment that leads to negative patient outcomes.

Medication errors


When the incorrect medication or a wrong dose of the correct medication is prescribed, causing organ damages, pain and suffering, or a range of other damaging outcomes.


Surgical errors


Understandably, surgeries all have an element of risk, but serious errors caused by negligence or bad judgement shouldn’t be among them. Operation on the wrong body part, badly performed operations and surgical items left inside the body are typical examples of this.

Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) / Mediation

"Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)," refers to resolving disputes in ways other than going to court.

 

People get involved in many types of disputes. You may choose one method to deal with a child custody dispute whereas an employment problem or a contractual dispute might call for something different.​

Negotiation - People who disagree can often get together to discuss the problem and reach a mutual agreement. When people sort out a problem themselves, they can work out a solution that best meets their own needs and interests. Solving disputes through negotiation is a part of everyday life. A lawyer can help you fight for the best deal in the negotiations on your behalf.​

Mediation - People involved in a dispute can ask a mediator, an unbiased and impartial third party, to assist them in their negotiations. Where negotiation has not been successful, the mediator can often help to ease tension and encourage discussion between the parties, facilitate the finding of a solution where everyone is satisfied with the result. Participation in mediation is mandatory in many cases. Some courts require that certain cases be referred to mediation before a trial can be scheduled. Either way, the mediator cannot force you to settle the dispute or to accept a particular solution.​

A common reason for choosing mediation is that the mediator helps the parties reach an outcome that satisfies them rather than one aimed at proving right and wrong. Through mediation, parties are able to work together to reach a creative solution that might not be otherwise available in a formal court proceeding.​

Situations that lend themselves well to mediation are certain family disputes, business disagreements, contract disputes, as well as employment and labour law issues, to name a few.​

The fact is that most court actions settle before trial. Using ADR methods early can save time and money involved. But ADR works best when it’s early on in the dispute resolution process. As time goes by, it may become harder to agree on a solution that satisfies everyone. Each side will become convinced they are "right" and the other side is "wrong."​

But negotiation or mediations are not suitable in all situations. If gender or cultural differences are involved or if there is such a clear inequality in bargaining power, or domestic abuse might be involved, the traditional Court proceedings might be a better way to resolve the disputes.​
