HomeLegalLawsuit Funding:  Winning a Judgement in a Lawsuit

Judgements in lawsuits can be won.

It's easy to bring a lawsuit against another party, but it's harder to win the lawsuit judgement. Depending on the type of lawsuit and the state or country you're in, you have to convince one judge or a group of up to twelve people in a jury that you are right and the other person is wrong. And, of course, you have to do this while the other person is using every trick they can come up with to convince judge and jury that they're right and you're wrong.

If your case is better than theirs (and you wouldn't be suing if you didn't believe that), you can win. But you have to be prepared to fight, and you, as well as your lawyer, need to do your homework.

Ways to Win Your Lawsuit Judgement

First, you should know everything about your case. There are great resources on the Internet where you can educate yourself about the law and how to win your lawsuit judgment. The information you find may be daunting at first, but if you have time on your hands while your lawsuit is forming, you'd be surprised how much you can learn just by reading about it. Pay special attention to the type of court -- federal or state -- that will be hearing your case, and read up on cases like yours. Make a list of reasons the courts chose to award judgements to plaintiffs, and also make a list of things that lost cases.

You should also find out everything you can about the reason you're bringing suit. For instance, if you were in a car accident, read up on the car models that were in the accident, look for any recalls or known flaws with the vehicles that could have caused the incident. If you find anything indicating the manufacturer could be at fault, bring this information to your lawyer immediately; this could become what's called a deep-pockets lawsuit. Large companies and corporations are typically held more liable than individuals when bad things happen, and will pay commensurately higher damages.

The most important thing you can do for your lawsuit is maintain close and constant communication with your lawyer. Try not to be impatient; lawsuits take time, often years, to settle. Do ask what they've been doing, what the other side has been doing, and what you can do to help move things along. Make sure you share any good information you find with your attorney, and if you don't agree with him or her on a point, don't be afraid to speak up. Attorneys are professionals, but not God; they do make mistakes. Also, be very nice to the attorney's office staff; if they like you, they can be surprisingly helpful when you're in a pinch.
