This CLE program gives an attorney a complete overview of handling a car accident case, with particular emphasis on New York State. From meeting with the client and extracting vital information to the handling of the Personal Injury Protection claim to putting the case into a lawsuit, this lecture touches on just about every well-known issue that needs to be addressed.
The lecture includes cost benefit analysis that must be taken into account upon accepting a case and whether a case is worth pursuing into trial or better settled earlier on. Handling a car accident case involves ever changing approaches to the credibility of one’s client, the seriousness of the injuries and the attitudes towards settlement taken by various well known insurance companies. This course will guide you through the thicket of those issues and gives helpful pointers on getting the most out of the case before you.
