More Insurance Company Tactics and Ways to Stop Them

In my last blog I discussed that insurance companies use tactics such as inference and innuendo to attempt to defeat an injured persons claim for damages. They often try to sway the jury towards the Defendant and away from the Plaintiff in subtle ways. In most personal injury cases, the defense will call their own medical expert to testify about the Plaintiff's injuries. The defense, if allowed, may try to refer to that doctor as either an independent medical examiner or the doctor that the court has appointed. This is improper. A Plaintiff's attorney, that is on the ball, will move to stop the defense from inferring that the defense medical expert is neutral, when he is not, or that he is more important than he really is. The Defendant should not be able to improperly build up the credibility of its own defense expert by misstating the facts.
