PLAY DEFENSE MEDICAL EXPERT FOOTBALL,
SCORE A FLATSCREEN TELEVISION AND HELP US HELP YOUR CLIENTS
NJAJ IS COLLECTING DEFENSE MEDICAL REPORTS, TRANSCRIPTS AND VIDEOS
Score big in NJAJ’s Defense Medical Expert football contest. Turn your Defense Medical reports, transcripts and videos into points and enter to win a 32” flat screen TV. The more points you accumulate, the more chances you have to win the TV in the random drawing that will take place on January 5, 2009. Compete with your fellow NJAJ members to see who can accumulate the most points and win the coveted MVDT (Most Video Depositions and Transcripts) award.
A weighted point system has been established that follows the basic scoring of a football game:
- 6 points for any videos or DVDs (touchdown)
- 3 points for each deposition transcript (field goal)
- 1 point for any reports (extra point)
You must submit the depositions between now and December 31, 2008 for entry into the contest. The winner will be drawn on Monday, January 5, 2009. The winner need not be present at the drawing to win.
You can submit the DME Transcripts and Reports directly to TrialSmith or NJAJ headquarters. These can be submitted three ways:
Mail: TrialSmith, 5113 Southwest Parkway, Suite 285, Austin TX 78735.
Make sure the docket number is included when submitting all reports as that information is sometimes not on the document as written. Video tapes or DVD'scan be sent to NJAJ, 150 West State Street, Trenton, NJ 08608 where a bank of them will be established.
One of the most common posts on the Personal Injury List Server is a request for information on Defense Medical Experts. The reason for such requests is obvious. Knowing what the expert has said in previous sworn testimony is invaluable information that can form the basis for a successful cross examination. Often, this can be the difference between winning and losing cases.
As an additional incentive for donating reports and testimony, TrialSmith will give a $5.00 credit for each deposition received towards any future purchases, and create your own digital library of cross examination ammunition consisting of all of your submitted reports and transcripts. You will have unlimited on line access to all documents you contribute to TrialSmith free of charge. Can you imagine the reduction in paper that can be obtained by taking the reports and deposition transcripts out of your files and having them stored digitally on TrialSmith to access any time you need them?
Should you have any questions or need any assistance, contact the NJAJ Brief and Expert Committee Co-Chairs Dan Rosner or Anthony Murgatroyd or any of the other members of the Committee including Robert Goldstein, Mark Cintron, Dave Wendel, James Lynch, AJ Talone, Mike Warshaw, Sal Daidone and Wade Suthard.
Search your offices and send in your transcripts and DME reports. You will be helping us help your clients and you just might win a 32 inch flat screen TV or even a few more cases in the process.
