Well, there are a few rules of thumb for PvP. One was mentioned already: Go for the healers first! There are a few telltale moves by your opponents which will let you identify healers. If no healers are in the opposite team you should find targets which are easy for you to take out. Find those opponents which don't do well in close quarter combat like smugglers and you will cause massive damage.
Since you mentioned a losing streak: Play the mission and encourage your team to do the same! Take the lead in chat if necessary. On average the team with some level of coordination and cohesion will win against the unruly zergmob. So don't move alone! Move in packs and attack in packs! Learn how to assign team targets by utilizing target symbols (Go to preferences, key bindings, targeting and pick keys for targeting symbols) and get your team to focus on the targets you chose. If you don't like to lead then learn how to follow! Be a 'wingman' and help out team mates who are in trouble.
Stay in motion! WZs like Alderaan and Novare are often won by those who shift their forces faster than the opposing team. So don't idle around at objectives you just won. Instead move to assist elsewhere.
Communicate! On defense warn your teammates where the enemy is attacking. Coordinate attacks or follow commands which direct you to attack somewhere!
Read WZ-guides! Know the key elements for victory of each WZ. Where are the choke points? How do I keep the enemy from winning?
Analyze your opponent! How are they trying to achieve victory? How do they deploy? Do they use stealth a lot? Are they sneaky? Direct? Can you 'draw them off' (some DDs will 'stay on target' at all cost which means that you can lead them to ambushes)?
"Game not broken! Is feature!"
