In the 25 years that I have been doing personal injury law, clients have brought many things to my office that pertain to their cases. It may be photos from the accident scene if they were involved in a car accident, the shoes they were wearing if they had a slip and fall accident, or paperwork if they have a workers’ compensation claim. They have even brought presents or treats for me and my staff. But, a dead body – never!
According to the Tampa Bay Tribune, a Lee County man put his dead neighbor in the bed of his pickup truck and drove to his lawyer’s office claiming he’d killed the man in self-defense. The attorney told the reporters that the client showed up around 4 p.m. yesterday, saying he didn’t know who else to trust. The man apparently wrestled a gun away from his neighbor and fatally shot him earlier Wednesday during a dispute property work.
To any of my clients reading this, you are welcome to bring almost anything to me relating to your case. Of course, treats are always welcome too! However, don’t bring this type of evidence.
