AAJ returned to the Big Easy May 5-6 with their annual Jazz Fest Seminar. This highly popular CLE event attracts attorneys from all over the nation who enjoy two days dedicated to building up litigation skills, collaborating on effective trial strategies, and forming lifelong professional relationships.
Speaking on proper venue selection, The Law Firm for Truck Safety’s Matthew Wright was one of the experienced attorneys invited to speak as faculty for the 2022 Jazz Fest Seminar.
Matt gave a talk about selecting the best venue for a client’s case. The nature of truck accident cases lends itself to opportunities to file in different jurisdictions, each with different rules that change that path to success for your trial strategy. These choices can dramatically affect the amount clients may ultimately recover. Cases may be filed where the most significant contact occurred. When trucking companies negligently hire train drivers in one state, that claim may properly be filed in the state where that hiring occurred. The full scope of courts in which you may file your case may not always be immediately apparent at the start and only having looked a police report.
When advocating for your client, proper venue selection is essential to ensure the best outcome for your case and maximize the compensation your client can receive for their injuries important not only for truck accident attorneys like Matthew Wright but all personal injury attorneys.
