    You file a claim/lawsuit against someone.  Then the lawsuit is served on the person you filed the claim against.  He responds.  You go from there.  It can settle out of court or go all the way through trial.

    Depends on the specific jurisdiction.

      It really does depend on the jurisdiction...take Louisiana as the big exception, being a civil rather than common law state...
