Can I Keep the Money if I Win a Lawsuit After Filing?
If you have recently filed a lawsuit, you may be wondering if you can keep the money if you win. The answer to this question depends on several factors, including the type of case and the laws in your state.
In most cases, plaintiffs (the party filing the lawsuit) who prevail in civil court are awarded damages that must be paid by the defendant (the person being sued). These awards can include both compensatory damages, which are designed to restore losses suffered by a plaintiff due to another’s negligence or wrongful act; and punitive damages, which are meant to punish someone for gross misconduct. When it comes to keeping any money awarded after filing a lawsuit, it is important that plaintiffs understand their rights under their state's laws.
