When to Call in the Computer Experts in a Civil Litigation Case

Lucas Law PLLC Laconia, New HampshireCivil litigation cases cover a variety of legal issues. Some can involve minor situations such as disputes between neighbors to major cases such as medical malpractice. Experienced and skilled civil litigation attorneys know that no two civil litigations are the same. Each party has his or her own unique situation that plays a part in every case. However, most civil litigation cases have one goal in common: seeking a proper settlement for any damages that have incurred or suffered due to negligence or a crime committed by a third party. For all civil litigation cases, regardless of how minor or major they may be it is helpful to have a knowledgeable attorney on your side.

Each case may include pre-trial mediation, out of court settlement, arbitration, or a civil lawsuit that goes to court and is heard by a judge and jury. With technology still in high demand today, and such a dominant resource in our society, the various forms of technology have also become key forms of evidence in many civil litigation cases. Various communication methods such as email, text messages, and even social media messages via Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn have all served as viable evidence in civil litigation cases over the last several years to a decade. However, with technology often serving as a prime form of evidence, this often involves computer forensics technicians to search and seize crucial information that is pertinent to any civil litigation case. This tactic is easier said than done, however. Also Read:

In many states the ability and freedom to search another's computer hard drive, email accounts, Smartphone, or other tablet and handheld device is often protected by local privacy laws, unless the technology and devices can be proven as an individual's or organization's own property. Basically if an individual or attorney believes that technology may serve as a key form of evidence, then a computer forensics expert should be acquired early on in the legal process. A computer forensics expert will be able to take the necessary measures and steps to ensure that all hard drives and channels of data are properly analyzed and preserved in order to effectively gather the necessary data.
