Civil litigation is an area of law that encompasses a broad range of lawyers who prepare and prosecute lawsuits in courtrooms involving a dispute over any tort, contract or special proceeding.

We often think of personal injury, real estate litigation, and medical malpractice as these types of cases. While all of the aforementioned areas fall into the category of civil matters, they are many, many more in which a lawsuit is needed to protect the rights of our North Texas clients, either as a plaintiff or as the defendant.

Personal injury

Personal injury law covers a broad array of issues when there has been a physical or emotional injury, or damage to property.

The law of personal injury deals specifically with determining who is responsible or liable for causing said injury or damage, and how much money the responsible party should legally be held out to pay.

Personal injury law can be classified in three broad categories: negligence, intentional torts, and products liability torts.

The Law Office of Bruce Harris has the necessary experience to either defend you if you've been served with a personal injury lawsuit -- or to collect as much money as possible if you have been injured (or your property has been damaged).
