The Significance of a Trial Lawyer for Your Case

By: Lala C. Ballatan

Cases concerning personal injuries could be traumatic enoughas it is, without having to undergo a trial. It is most unfortunate, though,nowadays, insurance companies are more daring than before, which was around the70s and 80s era.

Now, these insurance companies are in favor of the casesgoing to trial as opposed to their usual caution before not to have a case gointo trial.

Even the propaganda of insurance companies may now havecertain effects on the potential jurors' insight about cases. Nowadays, mostjurors coming to court may already have the expectation that they would find ascam or fraud artist who is professing to be severely injured because of a minorincident.

?The broadcast andprint media have fairly warned the people repeatedly regarding "JackpotJustice" wherein people could go before the court asking to be rewardedwith millions just because of an incident where they have been spilled withcoffee, have fell down into a puddle of water in the department store or had aminor fender bender. These cases are usually termed as frivolous cases.

The insurance companies' propaganda may be right in somecases. Probably these cases are not that numerous but are highlighted so thatsome victims become discouraged in ever filing a claim, much less a lawsuitbefore court.

Due to these, there are additional challenges for a triallawyer with specialization in personal injury and its myriad aspects, to bringlight on the significance of a client's case. Even if the jurors and the otherparticipants of a trial case may or may not understand it yet.

The trial lawyer will make every effort in order to let themsee your plight as sincerely as possible to thwart off the pre-conditionedthoughts on the minds of the jurors and the other participants. Your triallawyer will also know how your case can be steered off the possible instanceswherein the whole trial would become a terrible experience for you.

Here are the following general steps during trial whereinyour lawyer could have a hand in stressing the credence of your case.

Selection of jury or Voir Dire – the lawyers can do the juryselection according to the state's rules. In this process, the lawyer could besubjected to legal rules on what to ask the jurors. However, a brilliant triallawyer would be highly skilled in knowing how to recognize the potential jurorswith a pre-conditioned opinion about the case or with potential for prejudiceand discrimination about your situation.

Opening statements – your lawyer, considered, as thePlaintiff's lawyer may be first to deliver his/her opening statements beforethe Defendant's lawyer or the lawyer for the person/entity you have sued.

If your lawyer is highly competent and a persuasive and expressivespeaker, to boot, then he/she can make your case stronger than it actuallyalready is. It takes in-depth research for the trial lawyer to give a factualpicture of your pain and suffering and not only move the jurors and theaudience's emotions regarding your pitiful state.

Likewise, the witness presentation and cross-examinations upto the final arguments give your lawyer a good fighting chance to provide moreemphasis on your injuries and its implications to you and your family's life.
