Civil courts work a bit differently from criminal courts, and it can be hard to understand what you have to prove in order to win your case. That's because civil courts cover a much broader range of issues than criminal courts do, and the question of fault isn't always clear. Land disputes, Landlord/tenant disputes, breach of contract, disputes over construction, business and partnership disputes, all of these cases are different, and they all involve different sets of laws and expectations.
