If you have suffered because of the malpractice of a professional or because of the negligence of any individual or group, they have caused you pain and unnecessary expenses, and it is only fair that they ought to foot the bill for it. If their actions were particularly egregious, than they ought to be punished.
It is important to recognize the differences between civil lawsuits and criminal cases. If your case should reach trial, you, as the plaintiff, will have the burden of proving the validity of your claims*. For most civil claims, there are two different evidentiary standards: preponderance of the evidence, and clear and convincing evidence. A third standard, proof beyond a reasonable doubt, is used in criminal cases and very few civil cases.
Almost undoubtedly, your attorney in a plaintiff's liability/personal injury lawsuit will need to demonstrate a preponderance of evidence in order for you to win the case. The amount of evidence that constitutes a preponderance cannot be reduced to a simple formula. A preponderance of evidence has been described as just enough evidence to make it more likely than not that the fact the claimant seeks to prove is true. It is difficult to translate this definition and apply it to evidence in a case, but the definition serves as a helpful guide to judges and juries in determining whether a claimant has carried his or her burden of proof. Civil cases are tried at the superior court level, at the county courthouse representing the district wherein the malpractice was committed. They are tried before a jury of six county citizens.
