13 LIABILITY DAMAGES TOP 10 TIPS FOR THE INJURED Experts are invaluable in a serious injury case as they can explain very complicated subject matter to the jury in an easily understandable and compelling way. Cases can be won or lost due to the strength of your experts. Unfortunately, experts are not cheap, in fact, quite the opposite, and can oftentimes cost tens of thousands of dollars for their participation in a case. However, this is money well spent and something only a law firm with substantial financial resources will be able to pay (and risk) up front. In two of our recent verdicts totaling over 10 million dollars each, our firm spent over $600,000 in case costs to obtain such substantial verdicts. This highlights the importance of selecting a powerhouse law firm with the resources to hire the best experts and front the costly expenses necessary to get the best result possible. While your experts will undoubtedly help your cause, you have to be wary about the defendant’s experts and, in particular, their “medical expert,” who is allowed by law to examine you. This “doctor” may appear nice and helpful, but in reality, they are paid by the defense to offer opinions that are most likely going to diminish your injuries and ultimately devalue your case. As such, it is important to be well prepared for this examination or you could risk losing out on maximum recovery. This examination is so fraught with peril that it’s our firm’s practice to send a medical professional with you to make sure the doctor plays by the rules.
