Confessions of a Personal Injury Lawyer: It’s the Proof Not the Truth

It is not the jury’s job to decide what really happened.  The reality is that they decide what the evidence submitted to them proves.  For that reason, you can’t afford to take comfort in the fact that the truth is on your side.  A winning personal injury case has to be built piece by piece out of the evidence you are able to present to the jury, and there is a maze of rules of evidence, statutes, court rules, case law and logistical challenges through which your evidence must first pass before you can get it to the jury. A winning case is about having good facts, good clients, and then systematically and methodically proving it.
