Need more context

If its A level then it cant be that complicated.

It may be liability from two sources for the same act for example liability under criminal law, but then also civil liability for the same offence.
yes it is A level, my teacher said that both criminal law and civil law have double liability? it that makes sense
No clue what it means.

HTH.

Alright, don't need to brag, man.
It means when the same incident is both under criminal and civil law, for example a car hits a person where the driver was being reckless because not only is the person liable to get compensation (civil punishment) the driver may also be put in prison or receive a driving ban (criminal punishment), I know this thread was years ago but hope this helps someone
