Civil Justice Statistics in Scotland 2013-14
There were 77,173 civil law cases initiated in 2013-14, a similar number to 2012-13.
The number of civil law cases in 2013-14 was 41 per cent lower than 2008-09, largely because debt cases have nearly halved since then.
Nearly a third of personal injury cases were raised in the Court of Session where they made up over three quarters of the cases in the General Department.
