More Likely Than Not

This is the legal standard of proof that requires a party to prove it is more likely an event happened than not, or in percentages terms, more than 50 percent likely. In many personal injury or wrongful death cases in North Carolina, a plaintiff must only prove that it is more likely than not his or her injuries were caused by the defendant (see also—preponderance of the evidence, clear and convincing evidence, and beyond a reasonable doubt).
