Cases to Be Brought to Small Lawsuits Court and the Role of the U.S. Attorney General

In our article we offer you some information concerning the main purposes people usually attend small lawsuits courts for and the ways to win a lawsuit there. But at first we shall clear up the dependency of the small lawsuits courts on the U.S. Attorney General.

Being a head of the U.S. Department of Justice the Attorney General is the counselor of the president on legal questions. He is to represent the country and the government in the Supreme Court and to prosecute cases of the nation-wide importance. But you must understand that smaller regional cases are usually heard in small courts (they are called small claims courts or small lawsuits courts). The judges at these courts are officially subordinate to the U.S. Attorney General but certainly have their own legal power. They commonly conduct civil cases dealing with various claims of the citizens, usually intended on a certain compensation for losses or harm suffered.

So, people usually visit the small lawsuits courts for the purpose of answering a claim without large expenditures and for short term. Here are the most typical problems to be brought and solved at small lawsuits courts:

1. To get back a pledge.

If your landholder refuses to give you back your pledge even if you have left his ownership, you may sue him in a small lawsuits court.

2. To get the debt for rent.

You may be sued by the landholder in case if you haven’t compensated your rent and left the landholder’s property.

3. To receive compensation for a medical bill you paid for.
Imagine that you were injured because you had run against a log you neighbors left in your way home. That injury led you to a medical room, where you had to pay for treatment. In this case, if you neighbors have refused to compensate your medical bill, you would be able to sue them in a small lawsuits court.

4. To return the money you spent to make any repair of your personal ownership that was badly damaged for somebody’s fault.
For example, your neighbor’s child had thrown something into your window and thus broken it. You may file a lawsuit against your neighbors if they don’t want to compensate the damage.

5. To get back a small debt still unpaid.
If somebody borrowed from you, for example, $200 and the debt is still unpaid (the borrower doesn’t pay it deliberately), it is the reason to file a claim for small lawsuits court.

To file a lawsuit for a small lawsuits court you should meet some requirements.

The amount you are going to sue for is not to be over the limit adopted in your state (usually about $7000).

Collect all the documents and evidence which are necessary for the hearing procedure before you appear in court. That will help you to win the case.

Be confident and speak right to the point at hearing.

Use these recommendations and attain your end.
