Injury Trials: Opening Statements

     This brief article outlines some good tips to consider and use in plaintiff’s personal injury trials.  These tips primarily come from legendary trial consultant David Ball.  David Ball has written numerous books on plaintiff’s trial strategy.  He is probably the best personal injury trial consultant alive, and a hero of mine.  David Ball generally advises that when we tell the story of our cases we proceed in a chronological order.  The reason for this being that this is the way in which human beings naturally process information, from beginning to end.  Trials are complicated affairs

Injury Trials: Non-Economic Damages

     We, as plaintiff’s lawyers, need to let our jurors understand that they can and should allow money for non-economic damages.  We also need to teach our jurors how to calculate these non-economic damages.  We begin educating our jurors on this point in opening argument where we tell jurors that there are these non-economic damages and that we will teach them how to calculate these non-economic harms and losses later in trial.  When we get to closing arguments we will again reference these damages and how to calculate these harms and losses.  Trial consultant David Ball suggests that we

Negligent Security and Negligent Hiring, Training, Retention and Supervision

     Las Vegas, Nevada is a mecca for gambling and adult entertainment.  Consequently, tens of millions of people visit the area annually.  With so many people milling about in local casinos carrying cash, often inebriated, and unfamiliar with the area, it is no wonder local hotels, casinos, and stores are constant targets for the criminal elements looking to take advantage of the unsuspecting.  Furthermore, the very volume of people coming into contact with each other from all points of the globe almost ensures that violence will occur on hotel or store premises, ranging from the common fi

Negligence

     To recover under a negligence theory, the Plaintiff must prove four elements: (1) that defendant owed him a duty of care; (2) that defendant breached this duty of care; (3) that the breach was the legal cause of plaintiff's injury; and (4) that the Plaintiff suffered damages.

 

  1. Duty

 

Motion in Limine (Safety Rules)

     We have learned that the defense can beat us, plaintiff’s lawyers, with the tools of ambiguity and confusion.  When the defense relies on murky concepts such as “reasonable standard of care” and we fail to define what “reasonable” is, we lose in trial.  Thus it is incumbent upon us to define what that reasonable standard of care is.  We can do this by defining rules.  When these rules are broken the defendant’s actions have thus fallen below that “reasonable” standard of care. 

Motion in Limine (Conscience of the Community)

     The first lawyer I know of to use this phrase was the great Moe Levine.  Moe would consistently tell the jurors that they are in fact the conscience of the community.  Given this title it was left to the jurors to determine what is right and what is wrong.  The jurors, acting as the conscience of the community, need to determine what actions will and will not be acceptable in our society. 

Medical Malpractice

     Medical malpractice is negligence committed by act or omission on the part of a health care provider in which the treatment provided falls below the accepted standard of practice in the medical community and causes injury or death to the patient, with the great majority of cases involving medical error.

Knowing Your Audience in Voire Dire

     The Voire Dire process is of huge importance in the plaintiff’s personal injury context.  To this end, you need to push for the most expansive voire dire process available.  Judges have wide discretion as to how to run their courtrooms and as to the process of voire dire within their court rooms.  Given this wide judicial discretion, you as plaintiff’s counsel, need to be pushing your judge hard for an expansive voire dire process.  Oral motion alone will usually not be sufficient.  Thus you need to be putting on written motions well in advance of trial explaining to the court why you
