Proving and Disproving Damages in Personal Injury Cases 2016 Edition

This comprehensive guide covers the spectrum of issues arising in personal injury cases and provides solutions for attorneys through discussions of relevant caselaw and statutes, as well as practical advice presented for both the plaintiff and the defense. Experienced Illinois attorneys build a formidable knowledge base of trial techniques, Illinois Pattern Jury Instructions, and provide clear steps for how to refute or prove claims of damage such as those for physical injuries, psychological injuries, impaired earning capacity, medical expenses, lost wages, and wrongful-death actions.
