From voir dire through closing, attendees will learn what works and what does not work to establish liability and damages against design professionals with a jury. Through proper jury selection, effective use of technology and presentation of construction documents, emails, and photographs; and, selection and introduction of experts and their testimony, trial counsel can reach a great result. This presentation will provide you with a road map to get the result you want from a jury when it comes to trying a case against a design professional.

Upon completion of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Important considerations for construction cases that you plan to try against a jury.
  • Utilization of technology to present construction concepts, construction defects and damages to a jury.
  • The importance of effective selection of construction experts to support your case, introduce trial counsel's theories of liability and damages and get the jury to the result you desire.
