Defining “preponderance of evidence”

The term “preponderance of evidence” refers to the weight that is given to the evidence in civil cases, such as personal injury lawsuits.

The “preponderance” is the strength of the evidence and its probable accuracy. In civil trials, a preponderance of the evidence is usually just enough evidence to make it more likely than not that the fact the claimant is seeking to prove is true.
