Do you want to improve your case outcomes in auto crashes?

This seminar will give you the skills you need to take your cases to the next level. The seminar will be very different because experts in the areas of crash reconstruction, biomechanics, and medicine as well as some of the nation’s top trial lawyers make up the faculty: Dr. Arthur C. Croft, Dorothy Clay Sims, Dr. Michael Freeman, Keith Mitnik, and Dr. Aaron DeShaw.

Among the topics to be taught are:

  • Accident reconstruction for lawyers:
    • How to tell the adjuster why they are wrong about occupant risk
    • How to strike the defense’s biomechanist or crash reconstructionist
    • How to limit the defense’s biomechanist or crash reconstructionist’s testimony through motions in limine
    • How to cross-examine the defense’s accident reconstructionist or biomechanist when a judge allows their testimony
    • How the defense experts never talk about peak acceleration, the force that actually injures your client, when they testify
  • Important Risk Factors for Injury and permanency injury, including things like degenerative conditions, age, gender and many more.
  • Mechanisms of injury for many of the common injuries we see in auto cases:
    • Disc injuries
    • Wrist and shoulder injuries
    • Knee and hip injuries, and more
  • The Special Investigations Unit/Fraud Unit
    • Understanding their involvement in cases
    • Preventing uniformly bad offers in these and other motor vehicle cases
