An action is a legal proceeding that can lead to a trial. Starting an action does not mean you have to go through a trial. In fact, most actions do not go as far as a trial.
Your action is started by preparing and filing court documents before the limitation period has expired. This is important because if the limitation period expires before your action has been started, then your claim may be gone forever. Your lawyer will prepare the proper court documents and will ensure that you comply with all time limits.
