What is Preponderance of the Evidence?

Preponderance of the evidence is the legal standard used in civil claims to determine liability by a jury. Many people have heard of "beyond a reasonable doubt" as a legal standard, but civil cases (e.g., personal injury claims) are not subject to that standard. In fact, preponderance of the evidence is a much less rigrous standard to meer. Kevin Duffan and Rick Shapiro, two experienced Virginia personal injury attorneys, discuss preponderance of the evidence and what it means.
