Winning Opening Statements in Atlanta Injury Cases


Every trial begins the same way. Each side’s attorney has the right to make a speech to the jury, called an “opening statement.” In an injury case, the victim’s attorney gets to speak to the jury first. Then the attorney for the other side, who is potentially responsible for the victim’s injuries, gets to speak. Opening statements are not arguments, but they do present the facts that will be proved from the viewpoint of each party.

When we as attorneys at Stokes and Kopitsky, P.A. give our opening statement to the jury, we are working to give the jury a good mental framework to understand how the other side caused the victim’s injuries. We speak mostly about responsibility. We tell the jury who the witnesses are, what they will say, and what we will prove. We explain who caused the accident, what they did wrong, and how this injured the victim. With this framework, the jury can start to mentally vote for the side they want to win. A good opening statement gets that vote on your side, as the victim, right at the beginning.
