Settlement planning aids
Patrick Hindert over at his blog Beyond Structured Settlements has an interesting post that lists some recommended articles and resources relating to personal injury settlement planning. Among these are:
– Getting To Yes: Helping Reluctant Clients See The Benefits Of Settlement, Elaine McArdle, Lawyers Weekly USA (11/2004) offers up tips on bringing clients around to settlement. As the article discusses, some clients simply need time to accept that settlement might be optimal; for others, an explanation of financial benefits or talk with an impartial third party like a mediator or another lawyer may work.
— Database of judicial decisions on expert testimony, available at reasonable prices, via the “Daubert Tracker” at mdexonline.com .
— CrossExam.com database to review an expert’s deposition transcripts from prior litigation.
