Washington Personal Injury Lawyer, Jason Epstein, Discusses Misconceptions of What Happens in the Courtroom

Jason Epstein, Washington Personal Injury and Wrongful Death Lawyer, recently wrote an article revealing several secrets of the courtroom.

Seattle, Wash. – September 22, 2010 – Jason Epstein, Washington personal injury and car accident lawyer, recently wrote a piece for his website, http://www.StraightTalkLaw.com, titled “Secrets of the Courtroom.” The article highlights four common misconceptions of what exactly goes on inside a courtroom during a trial.  As a Seattle car accident attorney, Jason often hears many of these misconceptions and wrote the article to clarify what should be expected in the courtroom during a personal injury case.

The four misconceptions pointed out by Jason Epstein in this article include, “Frivolous lawsuits never make it to trial,” “Insurance can never be uttered in the courtroom,” “A case can be decided by a jury or a judge” and “Insurance companies can demand an ‘Independent Medical Examination’.”

About frivolous lawsuits, Jason writes, “The term ‘frivolous lawsuit’ is a buzzword that certain politicians and media personalities use a lot. It is also a term that insurance companies strive to popularize amongst the public. The reason for this is that it convinces juries in personal injury cases, that the victim of someone else’s negligence is being greedy. The fact of the matter, though, is that frivolous cases will never make it to trial. The legal system provides a lot of steps that a case must go through before trial that will get rid of any case that is frivolous.”
