What is a Plaintiff?

A plaintiff is a person, company, organization, or group of people who file a lawsuit. The plaintiff files a lawsuit because the defendant, or the other party defending the lawsuit, has failed to properly complete an agreement or contract. The plaintiff begins the lawsuit by filing a complaint with the proper court. Once the complaint is filed by the plaintiff, the defendant will file an answer responding to the plaintiff’s allegations.
