Will I have to testify in court?

If you are considering a personal injury lawsuit, you may be apprehensive about having to testify in court. Some people even hesitate to file a suit at all because of these concerns. It is a challenging concept for many who have never been in such a situation.

Most personal injury lawsuits are settled out of court without a trial. In these cases, testifying is not necessary, but often, making a deposition is. A deposition is similar to testimony in that it is conducted under oath with a court reporter present. The plaintiff is asked questions about his or her accident and injury by attorneys on both sides.

The difference is that a deposition is conducted in private, not before a court and judge. The process is less formal and less intimidating than testifying in court.

Fortunately, when a case does go to trial, the plaintiff has the support of his or her legal team in preparing to testify.

The attorneys at the Lietz Law Firm ready their clients for deposition and court testimony so that they know what to expect every step of the way. We are prepared to take any personal injury lawsuit to trial when necessary to get our clients the compensation they deserve.
