“I don’t give referring attorneys anything,” she said.

I went to dinner last night with some very dear friends that we see once a year. He's a doctor and she's a trusts and estates attorney.

However, in a medical malpractice or accident case in New York, that is not the standard that we must meet in order to prove that we are entitled to compensation. Instead, we need only show that we are more likely right than wrong that what we are saying is correct. This is known as the preponderance of credible evidence. If the jury determines that we are more likely right than wrong, then the injured victim is entitled to be compensated for the harm that they have suffered. Continue reading
