In this Pennsylvania Association for Justice article, Plaintiff Attorneys Need Protection, Martin Jacobson, Esq. discusses the risk that two common errors of omission often made by plaintiff trial lawyers pose. These in-actions, failing to have an expert discuss the pros and cons of structured settlements with the settling plaintiff; and accepting a defense side offered structure without e
ngaging a structured settlement consultant to represent the plaintiff, may have long term negative implications to the plaintiff and present a possible claim risk to plaintiff’s counsel.
Martin Jacobson examines the simple steps every trial lawyer should take before irrevocably committing the plaintiff to a cash settlement.
