Sample "Civil Demand Letter"

A Civil Demand Letter is a written statement that informs a recipient about a certain demand and typically asks for monetary compensation for the property damage or injury that occurred through the fault of the letter reader. It is legal to request payment for the wrongful act even if the matter was not addressed in court - whether you caught a person shoplifting or dealt with physical damage because of someone committing an offense, you are entitled to receive compensation from the guilty party.

You can find a Sample Civil Demand Letter through the link below. To create an effective message that will not be ignored by the recipient, you need to indicate your or your company's name, confirm the reason for composing the letter - you request reimbursement for the damage or harm you have suffered, establish the deadline for the payment, add your bank account details for the deposit, and certify your intention to file criminal charges against the individual in question if they do not comply with your demands listed in writing. Support your letter with copies of documentation that proves your point and send them to the addressee via certified mail.
