The opening statement is a missed opportunity for many attorneys.  It may be the first time that any member of the jury meets an attorney and it can thus set the tone for the rest of the trial.  Crafting a powerful opening statement in a nursing home negligence case is imperative to establishing a strong case in the courtroom. 


Here, attorney Michael Brusca emphasizes that knowing what you need from the very beginning is crucial to building your case, and examines the impact of properly expressing this in your opening statement.


Learning Objectives:

I.    Understand nursing home cases within the “big picture”

II.   Cultivate a story

III.  Identify a point of view for the narrative

IV.  Recognize necessary documents and discovery
