What does preponderance of the evidence in a medical malpractice lawsuit mean?

Preponderance of evidence is the burden of proof or legal standard required in order to win the lawsuit. In order to meet the preponderance of the evidence standard, a malpractice attorney must prove that the malpractice is more likely to have occurred than not to have occurred.
