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. Redirect testimony is supposed to be limited to matters that were discussed during cross-examination. The object of redirect is to rehabilitate you in the eyes of the jury or to answer questions raised by the cross-examination. For example, if the defense attorney forces you to admit during cross-examination that some part of your deposition testimony was different than your trial testimony, on redirect you may be able to offer a reasonable explanation for the difference or you may explain why the difference is irrelevant to the accident. The defense lawyer is permitted to conduct recross as to any issue raised on redirect, and so on until all the questions have been asked.
