Civil and Criminal Cases are two types of cases that are usually filled in the court of law. While both are being supplied to get justice for an accuser or to acquit someone, the fact remains that both civil and criminal cases are different from each other. Civil litigation is one filled in the court of law to get justice over disagreements, quarrels, between individuals, organizations or between an individual and a particular organization.

Anybody or organization that loses the case is not executed or imprisoned, but the loser can only be directed to pay for the losses the accuser has suffered. A criminal case, on the other hand, is a type of case filled in the court by a victim of a criminal act or a state to get justice. In a criminal case, if a defendant is convicted, he/she can be sent to jail or executed. A convicted person can also be asked to pay fines depending on the nature of the case.
