In our previous blog, we discussed how victims who are injured during an accident have the right to seek compensation for their injuries. This process is handled through the civil court system. In some cases, a settlement is reached through negotiation. In other cases, a judge or jury decides how the case should be resolved. If a judge or jury decides your case, you have the right to appeal if it doesn't resolve the way you think it should.
A civil appeal is initiated to look into errors of the law, which means that if something didn't occur as it should have from a legal standpoint, the appeal will be granted. If no error of law is found, the appeal is denied. Once a case is decided by an appeals court, the ability to further appeal is very limited.
