Lawyers must fully document all of their clients' injuries, and include the devastating effects of serious injuries that are often overlooked, such as chronic pain and traumatic brain injury.

Personal injury attorney Steven M. Gursten will be speaking Thursday during the Florida Justice Association 2012 Workhorse Seminar in Orlando, Florida. Gursten will discuss maximizing the value of cases in auto accident tort practices.

Gursten is head of Farmington Hills-based Michigan Auto Law, an 18 attorney law firm helping people injured in auto accidents. He is head of the Motor Vehicle Trial Lawyers Association and has presented at more than 100 legal speaking engagements.

Regarding the his presentation for the Florida Justice Association, Gursten said, "There are no shortcuts to getting more money for your clients who are hurt in car and truck crashes at the hands of negligent drivers. Lawyers must fully document all of their clients' injuries, and include the devastating effects of serious injuries that are often overlooked, such as chronic pain and traumatic brain injury."

Gursten added that being a lawyer who is known to take cases to trial also makes a substantial difference in the settlement amount: "Bad faith litigation against Allstate and other insurance companies has shown that a trial lawyer's successful track record can increase the value of a settlement up to four times, compared to the same injury case handled by an attorney who isn’t known as a credible trial lawyer," he said.

"Covering these bases is really the key to achieving higher auto accident settlements."

Gursten will be speaking at four more seminars in the coming months, including:

  •     New Jersey Association for Justice Boardwalk Seminar, "Truck Accidents from Case Selection to Trial," Atlantic City, New Jersey; April 26-27
  •     American Association for Justice Damages Seminar, "Maximizing the Value of Injuries, Traumatic Brain Injury and Chronic Pain Syndrome," New Orleans, Louisiana; May 3-4
  •     Michigan Association for Justice Seminar, "How to Settle Cases for More Money," Michigan; July 13
  •     Michigan Association for Justice No-Fault Institute, Michigan; September 13-14
