Assuming that the judgment is just against the corporation, then it would be a lien against the corporation's assets, if any. If there are not any corporate assets, and the Plaintiff is not successful in piercing the corporate veil, then that would be an end to the matter.

If the judgment is against you personally, then the plaintiff would be able to place a lien on your bank accounts, on your wages and potentially seize your personal possessions (which are not exempt) to sell to satisfy the judgment.
