Overview

In Winning Personal Injury Cases, experienced personal injury litigator Evan Aidman shows how new lawyers can level the playing field when facing experienced defense counsel. He also shows you how to draft effective demand letters and settlement proposals.

 

If you’re doing personal injury work, that means you’re battling insurance companies. Mr. Aidman guides you through that process and lays bare the hidden traps.

 

Most important, Winning Personal Injury Cases walks you through the personal injury lawsuit, from investigating the facts to closing argument:

What evidence do you need to gather quickly, and where can you find it?

First contact with the insurance company—what do you need to know?

How can you craft your discovery to get the best responses for your client?

Why are kids “different” in personal injury litigation?

You may be able to prove an injury—but can you maximize damages?

What negotiating tactics should you adopt? Which can you expect to confront?

What are your best objections at trial, and when should you make them? (Hint: not every objection that can be made should be made!)

How do you determine if a judgment is collectible?
