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.

Testimonials

Gerry is an absolute master at getting you to relax and speak to the camera in such a way that the clients – the potential clients – are going to be receptive to the message that you’re giving them. I decided to use video to market my law firm because YouTube is the second largest video search website on the internet, next to Google. And at some point in time, is probably going to overtake Google. So, I think it’s absolutely critical to have content out there to appeal to potential clients in your practice area. I would go to Gerry Oginski and really learn what a master in this area would do for you. Because it is absolutely clear that Gerry’s understanding of shooting video – in particular for personal injury trial lawyers- is so far beyond anybody else in this area that you would doing yourself a real disservice if you spent your money any other way
