The Burden of Proof in Civil Actions in Maine
If you are bringing a civil action, you must prove your case against the party you are suing by a “preponderance of evidence” (which roughly means that your version of events is more likely true than not true). This is a lesser standard of proof than in a criminal case. You must have good grounds to sue, and Leary & DeTroy will assess the circumstances. Contact us today for a free consultation.
