Testimony in Personal Injury Litigation-Part 2

Redirect and Recross-Examination

After the conclusion of cross-examination, your lawyer has the chance to ask additional questions on what is called redirect.

Medical Testimony in Personal Injury Litigation

MEDICAL TESTIMONY

Next your lawyer might move to the medical evidence. Your doctors testify about the injuries suffered, the treatment, the diagnosis, the causal relationship between the accident and the injuries, the amount of pain such injuries cause, and the prognosis for the future.

In the case I’m handling, the story is far different. My client was…

Turning a $25,000 Claim into a $3 Million Verdict

I wonder how Nationwide Insurance Company feels about the $3 million it invested in legal fees to defend a $25,000 collision claim. Although it took “18 years of litigation to achieve justice,” that was the final verdict and the language used by Judge Sprecher of Berks County.

Collection Practice in Personal Injury Litigation

COLLECTING FROM AN UNINSURED DEFENDANT

The operation was successful, but the patient died. This is how a litigant feels after obtaining a judgment against an uninsured defendant from whom it is impossible to collect.

Sometimes the verdict comes back…

Standard Objections in Personal Injury Litigation

Objections are the trial lawyer’s tool for preventing the admission of unfair evidence for the jury’s consideration. Some of the most frequently made objections are that the question is leading, irrelevant, beyond the scope, argumentative, assumes a fact not in evidence, or has been asked and answered.

Leading Questions
