What are Civil Appeals?

Civil appeals law in Canada refers to the legal process by which parties in a civil case may seek to challenge the decision of a lower court or tribunal by appealing it to a higher court. Civil appeals can arise in a wide range of disputes, including contract disputes, personal injury claims, and family law matters.

In Canada, the right to appeal is not automatic and must be granted by the court. Generally, an appeal is heard by a panel of judges who review the lower court's decision and determine whether any errors of law or fact were made. If the appeal is successful, the higher court may overturn the lower court's decision and provide a new ruling.

The civil appeals process is complex and requires experienced legal representation. It is important to note that there are strict timelines for filing an appeal, and failure to meet these deadlines can result in the appeal being dismissed. Therefore, it is essential to consult with a knowledgeable lawyer who can guide you through the process and help you achieve the best possible outcome for your case.
