Jim Kiley talks about Personal Injury- Part 1 Jim Kiley talks about Personal Injury- Part 1 Transcripts:
Mark: With personal injury, I would imagine that this is a wide area that's pretty vast. Is there any particular instance of personal injury which you find is probably the most challenging?
Jim: Well certainly when you're talking about medical malpractice. You're getting into a challenging area of the law, because the subject matter is challenging to a non-medical person. So when we have a medical malpractice come in, not only are you working the case up traditionally, in the legal sense, but you're working yourself up on medicine, and you're learning the medicine. So that is always challenging. Of course we have experts that we rely on for any medical malpractice case. But certainly, it's more complex than other cases. Product liabilities can be complex as well. Again you're dealing with experts to make the sense.
Mark: What is the most interesting personal injury case you've been involved in?
Jim: Well, I had a case recently where a woman was shopping at Pathmark. There was a display of spaghetti sauce, and she reached for a can, and the display fell down on her, injuring her legitimately. But it was interesting because somehow the Daily News picked up on it and had a headline, ?Meatballs cause spaghetti sauce to fall at local supermarket [the plaintiff address].? So that was interesting from a curiosity point of view. We definitely have interesting cases; I don?t know if the non-lawyers would find them interesting. But it's amazing how many times you have a case, and there is an issue of law, and you're thinking to yourself; well there've got so much law on this because this undoubtedly has happened many times before. Then you go and research and you find there is no case law. So the law is ever changing, ever evolving, ever making new laws, and you can?t presume that?s something might have happened, it might have been litigated and taken up on appeal. So it's everyday you learn more.
