Sometimes, in the litigation of an accident case, it almost appears that the plaintiff (the victim) is on trial, and not the defendant. From the moment the insurance company is notified of the accident, they begin their investigation to find ways to reduce the amount of money they will have to pay. They look for anything that can “throw dirt” on the victim and take the focus off of the defendant.
If the insurance company fails to offer a fair settlement, the case will go into litigation. Then the defendant’s insurance company has even more rights. Insurance lawyers almost always require the plaintiff to state his or her prior medical history, including all past injuries and accidents. For many victims, it is very hard to remember their prior medical history. Still, it is extremely important for the victim to remember his or her prior medical history. Insurance company lawyers hope a plaintiff will fail to remember it. Then they get to call the plaintiff a liar, taking the jury’s attention from the accident and the injuries. As few people actually lie about their medical history, it is regrettable that insurance lawyers tend to call anyone who does forget it a liar. It sometimes seems as if the insurance lawyer is lying.
A skillful and experienced plaintiff’s lawyer can see through the insurance lawyers tricks, and focus the jury’s attention on the plaintiff’s accident and injuries. Our successful litigation record shows that we protect our clients from such unsavory tactics of insurance lawyers.
