How Much to Ask For During Opening Argument in an Accident Case, Wrongful Death Case or Medical Malpractice Case in New York?
NY Medical Malpractice & Personal Injury Trial Lawyer
During opening remarks in an accident case or even a wrongful death case, you may be wondering if your attorney will ask the jury for a specific amount of money during opening arguments.
Here's the problem...the jury has not yet had an opportunity to hear any evidence. They have not heard about your injustice. They have not built up a sense of who is right and who is wrong.
It is presumptive to ask a jury during openings to think about awarding you millions of dollars since you have no real basis to do so.
Plus, if you are unable to fully prove your case, you have hurt your credibility and may not recover from that.
