More Defense Tactics and How to Combat Them

In this blog we will address a tactic used by the Defense to gain the upper hand in a personal injury lawsuit. All too often the defense tries to raise an issue as to when the Plaintiff hired his/her attorney. If the defense can show the jury that the Plaintiff hired the attorney before he even went to a doctor, they can infer that the Plaintiff is more interested in obtaining monetary compensation than in his/her own health. It is this sort of negative innuendo or inference that a good Plaintiff's attorney would try to prohibit the defense from asserting. A Plaintiff's attorney would accomplish this by filing an appropriate motion to the court to prohibit the defense from raising this issue.
