What Does 'Preponderance of Evidence' Mean? New York Medical Malpractice Attorney Explains

http://www.oginski-law.com

Watching TV we hear that the prosecutor has to prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt. 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.
