Ambulance Chasers and Personal Injury Litigation

AMBULANCE CHASERS
An accident can be a very traumatic event. An accident can leave you feeling vulnerable and at loose ends. Ambulance-chasing lawyers prey on this feeling. These lawyers, or their underlings, mysteriously pop up at the scene of accidents hoping to lure the accident victim.
Some lawyers peruse police reports of auto accidents. These reports are available for a few dollars. They…

Forward to Winning Personal Injury Cases

The insurance companies and their allies—big business and medical associations—have very skillfully manipulated public opinion in the last twenty years. Who hasn’t heard the anecdotes about runaway jury awards? The results of this well-orchestrated campaign are dramatic.

Testimony in Personal Injury Litigation-Part 2

Redirect and Recross-Examination

After the conclusion of cross-examination, your lawyer has the chance to ask additional questions on what is called redirect.

Medical Testimony in Personal Injury Litigation

MEDICAL TESTIMONY

Next your lawyer might move to the medical evidence. Your doctors testify about the injuries suffered, the treatment, the diagnosis, the causal relationship between the accident and the injuries, the amount of pain such injuries cause, and the prognosis for the future.

Turning a $25,000 Claim into a $3 Million Verdict

I wonder how Nationwide Insurance Company feels about the $3 million it invested in legal fees to defend a $25,000 collision claim. Although it took “18 years of litigation to achieve justice,” that was the final verdict and the language used by Judge Sprecher of Berks County.
