A quick definition of legally liable:

Legally liable means being responsible for something according to the law. If someone is legally liable, they may have to pay a fine or penalty for their actions. It's like being held accountable for what you do, and the law says you have to take responsibility for it.

A more thorough explanation:

Definition: Legally liable means being responsible or answerable in the eyes of the law. It refers to the legal obligation of a person to pay for any damages or losses caused by their actions or negligence.

For example, if a person causes an accident while driving under the influence of alcohol, they may be legally liable for any injuries or damages caused to the other party. This means that they may be required to pay compensation to the victim or face legal consequences such as fines or imprisonment.

Another example is when a company produces a defective product that causes harm to the consumer. The company may be legally liable for any injuries or damages caused by the product and may be required to pay compensation to the affected individuals.

These examples illustrate how being legally liable means being responsible for any harm or damage caused by one's actions or products. It is important to understand the concept of legal liability to ensure that individuals and companies act responsibly and take necessary precautions to prevent harm to others.
