Civil litigation cases are different from criminal court cases. There is a lower burden of proof in civil litigation cases, and the intended result of the case is financial damages, as opposed to jail time for the defendant. Winning a civil litigation case in California requires that the plaintiff prove his case by a preponderance of the evidence – or that it is “more likely than not” that the defendant is entitled to damages based on the evidence.
The type of things that have to be proven will vary depending on the nature of the case. In general, the plaintiff will need to prove that the defendant committed some type of action that resulted in harm to the plaintiff. The plaintiff will also need to demonstrate the extent of the damages.
An experienced civil litigation attorney will know how to evaluate the case, gather the evidence necessary to show a valid argument, and present the case in court or work toward a settlement.
