Get your trial team together. With the prospect of trials resuming as COVID restrictions ease, it is more critical than ever to coordinate your trial team to be organized and loaded for bear to take on the other side at trial. Topics covered in this program include:
Understand common issues regarding foundation for and admissibility of medical records, medical bills, doctor’s testimony and opinions. Learn how to get controversial evidence admitted (or object to some).
Whether at trial or in deposition, the “yes-no” question quite frequently constitutes a Scylla & Charybdis problem for the adverse witness: the “yes” constituting a damaging-to-witness admission, and the “no” creating a risk of the witness being impeached … maybe a BIG risk of a BIG impeachment. Thus, a willing-to-lie witness (and there are so many!!), perhaps coached by an unethical attorney (and there are so many!!), tries to avoid Scylla & Charybdis by claiming “I don’t remember X.” As experienced litigators well know, and newbie litigators will soon discover, these claims can be very tough to successfully attack. Learn the very best lines of attack against these lies.
