Every personal injury case is unique. There are different facts surrounding what caused the injuries, the specific types of injuries vary, and the effect of those injuries on clients is different in every case we handle. It’s always difficult to predict how a jury will evaluate the facts and injuries, as well as determine an appropriate award to the injured person.
Presenting the facts of a case in front of a mock jury can help shed some light on any uncertainties before going to trial.
At Curcio Law, we have used mock juries in several situations, such as to help evaluate the value of a case. We enlist participants from the potential jury pool of the area where the trial is pending and provide a neutral overview of the facts of the case. The mock jury then deliberates amongst themselves as if it were the real trial. With the advantage of having an “open door” to the deliberations, we gain valuable insight into what the jury focuses on in a case, and the strengths and weaknesses of the case, which allows us to adjust accordingly. Most importantly, we gain firsthand knowledge of what similar jurors may award the injured party and why. This enabled us to strengthen our negotiation position with the insurance companies and to focus on the issues that a jury would believe most important.
Curcio Law is currently in the process of converting one of our conference rooms into a mock jury room. It is going to be equipped with microphones and cameras to capture the mock jury deliberations and how they reached their conclusion. We are excited to be able to provide this valuable service to our clients very soon.
