Metrics details. Severe traumatic injury continues to present challenges to healthcare systems around the world, and post-traumatic bleeding remains a leading cause of potentially preventable death among injured patients. Now in its fifth edition, this document aims to provide guidance on the management of major bleeding and coagulopathy following traumatic injury and encourages adaptation of the guiding principles described here to individual institutional circumstances and resources. The pan-European, multidisciplinary Task Force for Advanced Bleeding Care in Trauma was founded in , and the current author group included representatives of six relevant European professional societies. The group applied a structured, evidence-based consensus approach to address scientific queries that served as the basis for each recommendation and supporting rationale.
Trial strategy is the overall plan to be executed with the most likely opportunity for success in the case. Trial tactics are the specific tools used to implement the overall trial strategy. Do not become bogged down in tactics so that sight is lost of the overall trial strategy. A single cross-examination that went unusually well will not usually carry the day.
Attention must be paid to what, in the large scheme of things, must be accomplished throughout the life of the case to ensure success at the end of the day. Every case is different and so every trial strategy will be different. However, certain universal principles can be applied in every case to lead to the best trial strategy for that particular case.
Consider the trial strategy of the case as similar to a highway onto which all trial tactics merge on the way to a successful destination. Mapping of the highway will permit counsel to maintain an overall view of the case much like viewing a road map from beginning to end. Although both liability and damages are important elements in developing trial strategy, one of the most important elements is the client.
Defense counsel, who has been retained by an insurance company through which defense counsel normally receives clients to represent a defendant, is not. In that instance, defense counsel is stuck with whomever the plaintiff wishes to sue unless they choose to decline to represent a particular defendant. The most important factors to consider with the client are trustworthiness and believability.
A solid, respectable, stable, believable, ordinary person is most capable of being identified with the jurors. Jurors will be more inclined to help someone who is most like them and with whom they can personally identify.
One of the most important aspects of trial strategy is making the client the centerpiece of the trial and the case. The client should be portrayed as the victim in the case from beginning to end of the trial. Obviously, victims and clients are not perfect. However, they all have their good points and values. Those should be developed and emphasized throughout the trial, beginning with voir dire. My name is Don Woody and it is my privilege to represent the plaintiffs in this case, Mr. It was their son Charles who was killed in this automobile wreck.
They have been married for 31 years. They met when Mr. Jones was in the Army. They were married and Mr. Jones attended college at Missouri University under the G. Bill and got his business administration degree.
He then began his own business known as Fulcrom Enterprises here in Springfield. While he was working to develop his business, Mrs.
Jones worked as a full time housewife and mother to their two children. Jones was born in Fulton, Missouri where his father ran the hardware store. Jones was born in West Virginia where her father worked for the railroad. He was born in the Ft. Leonard Wood Hospital while Mr. Jones was still in the service. After he got out of the service, they moved to Springfield because they thought it would be a good place to raise a family.
Any of the weaknesses of the client that will be exposed during trial should be disclosed by the attorney early in the trial and should be placed in a positive light as the facts permit. Also stress his or her strong attributes.
He has two prior convictions for DWI. The last of those convictions was eight years ago and resulted from an automobile accident that he admits he caused. However, since that time, he has managed to get help for his drinking problem, joined A.
He learned his lesson from that dark period in his life. He has since been steadily employed, married, and has a beautiful three-year-old daughter. Many jurors believe that plaintiffs are simply looking for a windfall, and that many frivolous lawsuits are filed.
Greenberg, Ph. Washington, D. Obviously, liability plays an important role in developing trial strategy. The key in trial strategy for the plaintiff is to present as clear a case of liability as is possible. Typically, the liability issue or weakness of liability will play a primary role in the presentation of evidence. The reverse is true for the defense. The weaker the liability case is, the more important it is for defense counsel to make that weakness central to trial strategy.
Defense counsel should make it a top priority to exploit the liability weaknesses of the case, to prevent the jurors from ever reaching the issue of damages.
In a case of strong liability and weak damages, defense counsel may want to admit liability and try the case on the issue of damages. Consider the relative strengths and weaknesses of the liability issues and contributory-fault issues in developing trial strategy. Obviously, that is not going to happen. Defense counsel will see to that. Considerable analysis should be undertaken to develop the best way to minimize the liability weaknesses, to rationally explain them away, or to eliminate them, if possible, with the help of expert testimony.
In a semi-truck and automobile accident case, two possible weaknesses on liability were minimized or eliminated through the help of expert witnesses. He was decapitated. The trucking company sought to admit a videotape of a demonstration it conducted showing how visible the lights and visibility tape were on the tractor and trailer at night in the same area from a similar car driven toward the same truck.
The trial judge did not admit the videotape, thereby helping to minimize any contributory negligence. The reverse will usually be true for the defense—the greater the injuries and damages, the smaller the role they should play in the defense trial strategy. Exhibits provide an excellent opportunity for the attorney to move about the courtroom to and from the witness and the exhibits, demonstrating control and emphasis.
Photographs and charts are extremely helpful, particularly in wrongful-death cases. They are excellent exhibits when used in closing argument and are often requested by the jury to review during deliberation. Videotapes may not be as useful because they cannot easily be used during closing argument or taken into the jury room.
Reliance on strong expert testimony is usually essential for both sides in such cases, and care must be taken to simplify and explain exactly what the complex medical situation is or how the injury is much more serious than it may appear on the surface. Certain elements of trial strategy are dictated by the venue of the case and the personality and character of the judge who tries the case.
If more than one venue can be selected for the case, consider how venue may affect trial strategy. If you are unfamiliar with the particular venue, consult other attorneys who have practiced and tried jury cases in the venue, to learn what to expect and to get a general feel of the venue and how it may affect the case and trial strategy.
Although the overall trial strategy you would use in St. Louis may not differ from what might be suitable in Manhattan or in Gainesville, Missouri, the manner and means you would employ to implement that trial strategy may differ depending on whether you are in a rural or urban venue, a conservative or liberal venue, or a blue collar or white collar venue. For example, the type of experts you would select and where they are from might be influenced by the venue.
An economist from Manhattan may play well in Philadelphia but he would probably not play as well in Gainesville, Missouri as an economist from Kansas City. Also, calling an economist may be more helpful in a conservative venue where he or she can help set a floor on damages than in a liberal venue.
Also, the amount you may seek to recover could certainly be influenced by whether you are in a blue collar or white collar area. The point is that a particular case, for instance, a medical negligence case concerning a botched abortion, would obviously receive a different jury audience if brought in Queens, New York than if it were brought in Ozark County, Missouri. A tobacco product liability case brought in Los Angeles would be received differently than if it were brought in Durham, North Carolina.
You should pay attention to the differences posed in approaching your trial strategy that are dictated by your venue. If you are unfamiliar with the trial judge, be sure to contact other attorneys to learn all of the information about the judge that can be obtained and especially how the judge may impact the presentation of the particular case. Sometimes subtle changes in the presentation of trial strategy can be made to accommodate quirks or eccentricities of the trial judge, thereby preserving the overall best trial strategy for the case.
For instance, if the particular judge is defense oriented, you may want to be more conservative in the type of photographs you seek to introduce in order to be assured you can get the photos in. In that way, you are modifying in a subtle way your preferred means of trial strategy in order to adapt to the known characteristics of your trial judge. This is a preferred approach than trying to confront the judge with more graphic photographs which he or she has shown a proclivity to exclude in past experience.
Jury instructions can play a useful role in developing trial strategy because they reveal the important skeletal legal elements of the particular case around which the evidence must be presented. The jury instructions will set the perimeters of relevant and admissible evidence in the case.
Because the important jury instructions make up the last information the jury is given by the court, they are a good foundation on which to develop the ultimate trial strategy. If the court uses model-verdict-directing instructions i. Once that goal is identified from those instructions, the means to achieve the goal—the trial strategy—can be fleshed out and filled in around those instructional requirements.
The particular jurisdiction, Missouri, has a model-verdict-directing instruction that must be given in virtually all premises liability cases involving invitees. It is MAI Second, defendant knew or by using ordinary care could have known of this condition, and. Third, defendant failed to use ordinary care to [remove it] [barricade it] [warn of it], and.
Despite whatever are the legalities of the particular case, every trial strategy is subject to the practical requirements of dealing with the truth and emotional realities. Stated another way, even though the legal requirements of proving the fact situation can be met with sufficient evidence and argument, the truth and emotional reality of those facts will pose certain limitations on trial strategy. For instance, the plaintiff can make a submissible case in the fact situation where the plaintiff was drunk with a blood alcohol reading of 0.

Acupuncture treatment of whiplash injury. We evaluated by computerized static posturography the postural changes after acupuncture treatment in a group of 27 patients 12 men and 15 women; mean age, Acupuncture was performed by piercing deeply and bilaterally acupuncture points bladder 10 and gall bladder 20 with steel needles that were twirled manually for 20 seconds. All patients underwent posturographic evaluations before and just after each session of acupuncture. The control group consisted of 25 patients complaining of the same symptoms as those recorded by the study group due to whiplash injury but treated with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and myorelaxation or with physiotherapy only.
Moreover, the Commonwealth was not precluded from seeking victim-specific relief, including restitution for individual consumers, when enforcing the VCPA on behalf of the public. This construction is consistent with the plain language of the statutory provisions at issue and the remedial purpose of the VCPA. The judgment of the circuit court is affirmed. John v. In addition, the failure to name a particular trust of a party was not error. Here, after being advised of the consequences of refusing to cooperate with the required evaluation, the respondent persisted, and the predictable consequences neither deprived him of a fair trial nor violated due process. The judgment is affirmed.
Trial strategy is the overall plan to be executed with the most likely opportunity for success in the case. Trial tactics are the specific tools used to implement the overall trial strategy. Do not become bogged down in tactics so that sight is lost of the overall trial strategy.
Below is an example settlement demand letter we wrote in a truck accident case that we ultimately settled. In some cases, the demand letter is the linchpin that gets the claim resolved. In others, it is a useless appendage that sits atop a pile of medical records and bills. Either way, you have to write the demand package like the case depends on it. Measure twice and cut once: there are a lot of mistakes you can make in putting these letters together. You are going to have a hard time backing away from any position that you take in the demand package for settlement purposes as the case progresses. As we discussed, this is a very serious injury case.
