Who Testifies at a Trial in a Personal Injury Case?

In the typical automobile accident trial, in District Court, the driver[s] and other witnesses [if any], and anyone who is claiming injury testify before the court, sitting without a jury. It is rare, but occasionally a treating physician or therapist testifies live in court. Usually though, the medical records and bills are submitted without live medical testimony.

In Circuit Court, the stakes are higher. 

Usually, in addition to the above parties and witnesses, a treating doctor or therapist testifies, live, or by video deposition. Sometimes thorough Baltimore personal injury lawyer employs experts [e.g. a reconstructionist, engineer, law enforcement officer, or the like.] The trial of a personal injury case can be complex. If you are involved in litigation, or are headed that way, and do not have an attorney, you need to consult with one immediately.
