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.

The plaintiff will have to pay their lawyer out of what they receive. In Minnesota there are no claims that can be made in a personal injury case for the attorney’s fees. Consequently, the number the plaintiff receives is often much less than what the jury believes that they have awarded.

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.
