How does a civil case work?

A civil case can be filed for any number of reasons, but the goal is to have the judge or jury decide if the defendant should be held liable for damages the plaintiff allegedly suffered. The judge and jury will listen to both sides present their arguments and consider if the defendant should be liable for the damages that have been alleged or not. If they will be held liable, the jury or judge has to decide to what extend they should be held liable.
