Handling Tough Issues in a Plaintiff’s Personal Injury Action (2019)

Handling Tough Issues in a Plaintiff’s Personal Injury Action (2019)

Attorneys hope that their cases will proceed smoothly to verdict or settlement without detours. Unfortunately, in real world practice, this is the exception, especially in personal injury litigation. Bankruptcy of a party, death of a plaintiff or defendant, or the presence of an infant party all add complexity to the resolution of a personal injury action. In these trying economic times, plaintiff’s counsel must deal with the reality of more aggressive enforcement of liens asserted by both governmental entities, such as Social Services and Medicare, and private entities, such as health insurance companies and workers’ compensation carriers. No-fault and SUM issues arise in everyday practice, and the personal injury attorney must also be prepared to represent clients before the Court of Claims. This seminar is designed to provide a practical overview of the law and strategies involved in personal injury cases. Seasoned practitioners will provide updates on the substantive law and insights on how to successfully deal with tough legal issues faced by plaintiffs personal injury attorneys. The program will also offer a discussion of real life ethical issues faced in personal injury practice. The program will conclude with a pragmatic look at personal injury practice in difficult economic times; from case selection and cost-effective discovery, to jury selection and dealing with the problems presented by the instant communication age.
