Has anyone ever heard a client utter these words? For many years all I thought about when I heard a client say these words was, “Of course it’s about the money.” I was wrong; it’s not about the money, it’s about the damage to our clients and their families. In trial, if our sole focus is “about the money”, we are doing an injustice to our clients.
Our clients’ lives and the lives of their families have been forever altered by the actions or inactions of the truck driver, company, broker, shipper etc… This article is by no means a silver bullet for presenting damages in a trucking case, but rather my hope is to talk about some concepts. Some you may know and some you may be hearing for the first time, in order to develop what works best for you in your case.
