This CLE webinar will provide guidance to personal injury plaintiff and defense litigators on strategically using motions in limine to prevent the admission of prejudicial or irrelevant evidence or to obtain a ruling allowing for the admission of certain evidence. Our panel will discuss common pitfalls with motions in limine and explain how thoughtful crafting and arguing of motions in limine can help ensure that certain evidence is excluded or admitted at trial.
Strategically filed motions in limine can set the stage for success in personal injury trials by preventing unfavorable evidence from coming before the jury. Motions in limine can also be leveraged by personal injury litigators—both plaintiff and defense—to obtain advanced rulings on whether evidence critical to their position may be admitted.
When approached thoughtfully, motions in limine can be instrumental in helping counsel develop case themes and defining the parameters of a trial. Motions in limine can also serve as an effective tool for preserving issues for appeal.
