How Do Insurance Companies Calculate Loss?

     Every personal injury claim begins by submitting a claim to the Defendant's insurance company after the client is done with medical treatment.  At that point, an attorney prepares a “demand letter” that spells out the insured's liability and the client's damages.  Once received, the insurance company evaluates the claim and decides whether to settle the matter or deny the claim, due either to a problem with damages or because their insured is not liable for the client's damages.  If an insurer accepts liability, the question then becomes what damages will that insurer agree to pay for?

Business Torts

     Business torts are not committed against persons or property; rather, the harm done is to intangible assets, such as economic interests or business relationships.  Generally, there are three common “business torts”: 1) Interference with contractual relations, 2) Interference with prospective business advantage or the tort of “unfair competition”, and 3) Fraudulent misrepresentation.

Interference with Contractual Relations

Arming your Jurors in Closing

     This brief article was written primarily for my, Eric Roy, and my staff’s benefit.  Here I point out some important tips to employ in closing argument in the plaintiff’s personal injury trial setting.  Most of these ideas come from brilliant trial consultant David Ball.  David Ball has written substantially on modern day plaintiff’s trial advocacy and thus I refer you to any of his publications if you seek a thorough understanding of this material. 

Arguing Liability in Closing

     As a general proposition we, as trial lawyers, seek to demonstrate liability from beginning of trial through closing argument.  Our primary mechanism for doing this is by first showing the jurors what the rules are, which defendant was obligated to abide by, and then demonstrate that the defendant did not play by those rules.  We need to keep this concept front and center for our jurors at all points in trial.  The defense will attempt to obfuscate and confuse the jurors into believing other issues are of importance.  Don’t fall for this trap.  It is important that you stick to your ap

Anticipating and Overcoming Challenges from the Court

     When preparing for trial, like many other endeavors in this life, it is best to hope for the best but to plan for the worst.  In other words, you need to draw up your opening statement, closing statement, witness examinations and so forth as you intend to present them.  That being said you need be ready for potential hiccups in your presentation.   You may receive friction from the court and you need to have a plan in overcoming any potential friction which will otherwise interfere with your game plan.  If you pursue some of the more modern methods of trial advocacy, for instance those

Premises Liability and Breach for Third Party Criminal Activity

     Generally, the elements of a negligence claim under Nevada law are: (1) that defendant owed plaintiff a duty of care; (2) that defendant breached that duty of care; (3) the breach was the actual cause of plaintiff's injury; (4) the breach was the proximate cause of plaintiff's injury; and (5) that plaintiff suffered damages.

 

Duty of Care

 

Witness Competency

     This short blob/article was written for my, Eric Roy, and my staff’s own benefit.  The rules outlined below are those that govern witness competency as dictated by Federal Rules of Evidence.  That being said, many states adopt the Federal Rules of Evidence in part or in total.  Thus, always look to your state rules specifically to determine how your local courts handle these matters.    

Understanding Hearsay Doctrine

     The purpose of the hearsay doctrine is to exclude evidence which may lack reliability.  Analogous to the best evidence rule, the hearsay rule gives preference for live testimony subject to cross examination as opposed to out of court statements being later repeated in trial which are thus no longer subject to cross examination.  It is thought that the mechanism of cross examination is the most effective tool we have for delivering and finding truth in our jury system.  We want an individual who makes a statement to be cross examined as to his or her perception, memory, narration, and s

Procedure for Objections to Evidence

     Either party may seek an advanced ruling regarding a proposed item of evidence prior to trial.  The party seeking such will do so by motion in limine.  A proponent of evidence may move in limine so as to determine, prior to trial, whether some evidence will be admissible at trial.  This is a smart move as it eliminates risk of an objection to your evidence being sustained at trial or worse yet a mistrial granted by opposing counsel.   More frequently, the opponent of evidence will move pre-trial to suppress evidence.  An advance ruling to suppress evidence is important as it eliminates

Privileges

     We know that logically and legally relevant should be admitted so as to assist the trier of fact in reaching a proper ruling or verdict.  That being said we also know that there are times when even this logically and legally relevant evidence is precluded from the courtroom.  The reasoning behind such exclusions typically boils down to policy reasons which the legislature believes are significant enough to justify the exclusion.  Of course, there are exceptions to exceptions as we often see.  We will explore some privileges here and the exceptions to those privileges.
