What is Burden of Proof?

Writing Notes

Personal Injury Law Glossary

The burden of proof is the responsibility of a person or organization to prove/disprove a fact. Whoever has the burden of proof needs to prove what they are saying is true. In criminal cases, the burden rests on the prosecution, who provide so much evidence that no reasonable person could doubt that what they are saying is true. In civil—and personal injury—cases, the plaintiff must prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt, but to a preponderance of the evidence.
