What The Jury Can’t Be Told: What Took So Long?

Comments Off

This month, we will be looking at things that we cannot tell the jury during a trial. It is truly unfortunate that as the party with the burden of proof, meaning the party that has to prove everything by a standard more likely true than not, that we cannot tell the jury the truth. I absolutely believe that the jury, during a trial, will start wondering about things that they are not told. Because of this I am always concerned that my client will bear the brunt of not being able to be forthright and get all the information across during the trial. It is one of the many ways an experienced personal injury lawyer can make sure your rights are protected as best they can be under the law.

Delays are often caused by facts other than plaintiffs just sitting around. It is not unusual for jurors to get mad at plaintiffs with questions of why it took so long to get to court. Getting to court involves a number of different deadlines that include the very busy court system (which is usually busy with the criminal and business cases that have nothing to do with personal injury). Most clients would love to get their case done a long time before they actually get there. However, because of the system as it is today, they often wait years in order to actually get their day in court.

If you, your family or someone you know is going to trial in a personal injury case, you need to have an experienced trial lawyer on your side with success in helping people who are injured through no fault of their own. Because of all the potential ways that the insurance companies can take advantage, you need to know what your rights are and the best way to try your case.
