Defense Trial Tactics Used By Personal Injury Attorneys

In order for NY personal injury attorneys to build a strong case, they need to know what common defense tactics their counter defense attorneys are using. Below is a list of some common tactics used by defense attorneys:

Provoking Plaintiff to Make Mistakes

A common tactic that is used by the defense is to provoke either the plaintiffs or their NY personal injury attorneys to make mistakes in anticipation of trial or during trial. The goal is to make them angry to cast a negative light in front of the jury. This tactic is effective because anger is generally viewed as a sign of weakness in the plaintiffs case.

Slogans Used By the Plaintiff Against the Plaintiff

Another defense tactic used against the plaintiffs case is for the defense team to use actual cliche or slogans used by the NY personal injury attorneys against them at trial. This tactic is also aimed at showing the weakness of the plaintiffs case in order to get a verdict for the defense.

Use of Creative and Effective Discovery

With the file of suit in a court of law, every piece of information is fair game for either the defense or the plaintiff to obtain from one another through discovery in preparation for trial. Defense will use discovery as a tool to creatively obtain information that would otherwise be unavailable and is generally detrimental to the plaintiffs case.

An Expert Plaintiffs Attorney Will Fight Defense Tactics

Expert NY personal injury attorneys will use knowledge of defense tactics to build their case in such a way that these tactics will be useless and will not cast a negative light in front of the jury. As such, it is imperative that you hire only the best attorney to file your claim in order to get you the fair compensation to which you are entitled for the personal injuries that you have suffered.
