After many years of successfully defending medical malpractice and product liability cases, Mr. Valitutti pioneered the development of a process that is designed to identify those issues which favor the defense and are ignored purposefully, typically in large damage potential cases. This includes strategies that seek to bring more of the truth about future damages before jurors than others. Recognizing the defendant has a burden of proof on the issues of damages in catastrophic injury cases, Mr. Valitutti on showing the actual cost of future care is catastrophic injury as opposed to what is black boarded (claimed). Using this strategic capability, he coordinates the defense of catastrophic actions nationwide and, is often asked to share responsibilities with local counsel in the development of examination of frequent testifiers, successfully defending cases to verdict.
