Injury Trials: Expert Witness

     Be advised that I write these blogs/articles for my, Eric Roy, and my staff’s benefit.  Most of the information regarding this specific topic comes from the teachings of Rick Friedman and Patrick Malone.  These are two of the most respected trial attorneys in the country.  For a thorough understanding of these ideas please refer to any of their publications which are enlightening to put it mildly.  

Wrongful Death

     A "wrongful death" occurs when a person is killed due to the negligence or misconduct of another individual, company or entity. Under the common law the death of the wrongdoer caused an abatement of any cause of action in tort against him.

Injury Trials: Worthwhile Purpose for Money

     This article/blog was written for my, Eric Roy’s, own benefit.  Most of these concepts come from trial consultant David Ball.  His thoughts and ideas are rather ingenious.  I get a lot of my information from trial lawyer Don Keenan as well, who is also terrific.  Of course there are many other excellent trial lawyers who provide a wealth of information on the subject.  For a thorough understanding of this information however I refer you to any of David Ball’s publications. 

Witness Preparation

     Trial preparation is a long and tedious process.  By the time we complete preparing our cross examinations, direct examinations, opening and closing arguments we often forget to take the time to thoroughly prepare our witnesses.  However, if you have a big case and you will be putting your client on the stand you definitely need to take the time to prepare your witness for this process.  We, as lawyers, take public speaking for granted.  We forget that public speaking is a terrifying process for many people.  To this end we need to take the time to prepare our witness to take the stand

Whiplash Injuries

     Whiplash refers to an injury to the neck muscles and muscle attachments such as ligaments and possibly the disks that separate the vertebrates of the spine.  Whiplash commonly results from a rear end vehicle collision.  This collision results in a rapid forward acceleration of the body and neck while the head remains in place.  This is followed by a rapid whip like movement of the head as it accelerates to catch up with the forward momentum of the body.  When this occurs the vertebra in the lower spine extend backward while the upper half flexes forwards.  This results in a stretching

Voir Dire on Personality Traits

     As I’ve stated before, jury selection is of tremendous importance in plaintiff’s personal injury trial work.  Don’t neglect this task or wait until the final evening of trial to prepare your voir dire.  That being said, we need to have an eye for what to look for if we are going to spot positive or negative jurors for our case.  We may have a tendency to base juror selection on broad principles of demographics such as gender, race, age, income level, and the like.  Leading trial consultant David Ball tells us that this type of decision making is generally ineffective in the jury select

Voir Dire in Personal Injury Trials

     The first concept to remember and keep in mind is that voir dire is incredibly important in plaintiff’s personal injury trial work.  It is more important today than it was twenty or thirty years ago.  The reason for this is that more jurors are coming into the courtroom with powerful prejudices against plaintiffs and plaintiff’s counsel.  Tort reform has changed the way much of the public views law suits.  Thus when we go into trial as plaintiff’s attorneys we can expect to have many adversaries in the jury pool.  The Defense attorney does not have to contend with this problem.  As a r

Voir Dire and Peremptory Challenges

     The purpose of this short blog is simply to shed some light on some of the Nevada rules regarding jury voir dire in civil trials.  In Nevada, both sided of the case are afforded unlimited for cause challenges followed by four peremptory challenges.  If there are multiple parties on one side of the case, and these parties have diverse interests then the court may allow up to four peremptory challenges per party.  Note that the parties are free to stipulate to allowing one another to exercise more than the normal and customary four peremptory challenges.  This could be a decidedly useful

Voir Dire and Cause Challenges

     Some lawyers will say that voir dire is one of, if not the most, important segments of your jury trial.  I have noticed however that some attorneys seem to take voir dire for granted, spending little time in voir dire or seemingly unconcerned with the voir dire process.  I have to agree with those attorneys who emphasize the importance of the voir dire practice.  You can put on the best plaintiff’s case imaginable and end up with a defense verdict if you have the wrong jurors deciding the outcome of your case.  Remember that even one bad juror can defeat your case, especially if that b

Visceral Communication in Trial

     Trials are complicated affairs.  Trials by their very nature require a unique and often disjointed means of presentation.  Moreover, trials often take days if not weeks to conclude.  Given these circumstances, combined with the short attention spans of today’s jurors, it is incumbent upon us as trial lawyers to do all we can to steal the attention of our jurors.  To do this we can look to the teachings of theater.  Trial consultant David Ball, who has a strong background in theater, instructs us to use the same concepts, employed for ages in theater, in our trials.  To accomplish this
