The Stages of a Claim and the Stages of a Case

A claim can be settled at many different points in the process. People are surprised that a claim can be settled pre-suit, that is before a formal lawsuit has been filed in the court. They can indeed.

Experts and Expenses

The subject of today’s blog is experts and expenses. Experts are a necessary part of any major, or even not quite so major, personal injury case. You need experts: you need them for damages and, many times, you need them for liability. In those cases where you need experts to help to establish liability, the case will not “get to a jury” without them. In other words, the judge will not let a jury render a decision in the absence of certain expert testimony.

Considerations of finances in a personal injury practice

This blog is a little different from my ordinary blog. Typically, I focus on the handling of my cases, which are exclusively personal injury matters. I discuss laws pertaining to them and what I see as common issues that arise. Today, this is more of a discussion about law firm management. I thought of this topic because I was asked by my legal alma mater, The University of Pennsylvania Law School, to come to Philadelphia to speak to a class on law firm management.

What Question Do You Get the Most from Clients?

Recently somebody asked me what question do you get the most from clients? It is hard to quantify, but I do know one question that comes up quite a bit. That question involves timing: “How long will all this take?” I would have to say that is the question that is put to me many, many times, and is probably the most common question.

Insurance Coverage and the Amount of Insurance are not Admissible

In the last three blogs I have been talking about a softball injury that happened at a U.S. Army National Guard outing and it involved a significant injury to a thirteen-year-old boy. The thirteen-year-old had claims for his physical injuries. Because the judge found the government through its supervising officer was 80% negligent, the boy was able to recover 80% of his injuries.

Damages in a Personal Injury Case, The Elements

In the last blog I touched on loss of consortium damages. As you would know from reading the last several blogs, I have been focusing on a case that was tried in the federal court before a judge. It was tried under what is called the Federal Tort Claims Act. The judge in this jury-waived case issued a detailed opinion, something we don’t see in a jury trial.

Loss of Consortium as an element of Damages

In the last three blogs I have been talking about a softball injury that happened at a U.S. Army National Guard outing and it involved a significant injury to a thirteen-year-old boy. The thirteen-year-old had claims for his physical injuries. Because the judge found the government through its supervising officer was 80% negligent, the boy was able to recover 80% of his injuries.

National Guard Family Outing – Comparative Negligence

In recent blogs we have seen how the U.S. government can be liable in a U.S. Army National Guard family outing. A thirteen-year-old boy was hit while walking along the third base line at a softball game involving older people. As the boy was walking towards home plate, along the foul line, the catcher hit him on a throw to third to nail a runner.

A Personal Injury Trial under the Federal Tort Claims Act

This is the second blog in a series about a federal case under what is called the Federal Tort Claims Act. As you may recall from the last blog, a youngster, a thirteen-year-old boy, suffered a very significant injury while walking close to the field of play during a softball game. The game was a “pick up” game at a U.S. Army National Guard outing.

A Softball Injury Leads to a Federal Case

A case was recently decided in the federal court as a result of an injury occurring to a thirteen-year-old boy during a softball game at a National Guard outing. It was a “bench trial” meaning that it was decided by a judge and not a jury. The judge issued a detailed written opinion in this case of negligence, Woolf v. United States.
