Evidence Linking and TRS

Image of a man taking a photo of an accident with his cell phoneOne of the improvements TRS offers is the ability to embed evidence directly into liability or damages arguments to require arbitrator comment. This functionality was developed in response to member feedback that arbitrators do not always comment on a specific evidence item the party felt was pertinent.  
We are sharing some tips on embedding evidence: 
  • Limit the number of embedded items to those that are key to proving a specific liability or damages argument, and which arbitrators may not commonly comment on
  • Ensure the supporting evidence item is inserted following the specific argument it supports.
  • Consider highlighting key content of the evidence item, as shown below.
