There is a commonly held belief that any licensed attorney can handle an automobile collision case successfully, but nothing could be further from the truth. The failure to appreciate the nuances of the law, defenses, science, theories, and other potential pitfalls could prove disastrous for your case.


From the initial meeting with the client, the prepared plaintiff attorney will be cognizant of the broad scope of issues and strategies that must be addressed and implemented to achieve the best results for their client. AAJ recently updated this packet to provide a comprehensive overview of those issues and strategies to assist its members in preparing and litigating these often catastrophic—and all too common—cases on behalf of plaintiffs and their loved ones.


Through sample pleadings, discovery motions and briefs, trial transcripts, post-trial motions, and summaries and transcripts from depositions of defendant drivers, corporate representatives, and expert witnesses, this Litigation Packet supplies plaintiff attorneys the tools and knowledge necessary to litigate all types of motor vehicle collision claims. This

essential resource also includes AAJ Education speaker papers and sample case documents on a variety of issues relevant to motor vehicle collision litigation, including:

  • Case intake and initial investigation
  • Insurance considerations
  • Budget-friendly, effective discovery plans
  • Tactical depositions of defendant drivers, expert witnesses and corporate representatives
  • Motions practice
  • Settlement negotiations tools and strategies
  • Tools and strategies for selecting jurors and combating juror biases
