Many clients think that an appeal of their case is guaranteed if they are unhappy with the outcome. However, there must be a legal basis for the appeal. A legal basis would include such things as a material error or improper jury conduct.
A person may not appeal simply because the losing party did not like the verdict or that the victim perceived the jury award as “too low.”
In a civil case, either party may appeal to a higher court. In a criminal case, only the defendant has a right to an appeal in most states.
It’s important to know and understand how going to court can impact the outcome of your case and what the options are before going to court. This is where an experienced attorney can help guide you through the process.
