Richard Pullano leads discussion on how to maximize awards
Successful personal injury cases require intense preparation, a solid strategy, and a keen understanding of how to communicate with judges and juries. The difference between a routine settlement and a record-breaking award often comes down to the training, insight, and skill of the plaintiff’s attorney.
In May, Richard Pullano organized and led a discussion on how to maximize damages in personal injury cases. Pullano presented questions to an impressive panel of lawyers, who provided expertise and insight into best practices for opening statements, direct examination of plaintiffs, cross examination of medical experts, closing arguments and other integral aspects of the trial process.
“Awards are not won or lost in the deliberation room; they are decided during key moments in the trial,” said Pullano. “Success depends on capitalizing on these moments when juries determine whether they are for us or against us, and whether our claims deserve the damages we seek.”
