Many personal injury victims have legal claims for compensation. When those claims go to trial, the outcome often turns on the oral testimony of treating health practitioners and expert witnesses. An unprepared witness can spell disaster for a case and for the witness’ professional credibility. In this article, Robert M. Ben provides a primer on how to prepare for giving evidence at trial, what to expect in cross-examination, and how to present as a credible and reliable witness. Find out what the lawyer calling you as a witness should be doing to prepare you.
