Testifying in a Personal Injury Case in Denton County

Three Tips for Presenting an Effective Testimony

Headed to court after a serious personal injury? For most people, going to court is an intimidating experience. Even individuals with nerves of steel may feel frightened while answering questions during a cross-examination. Fortunately, our Denton County personal injury attorney can help you prepare for your hearing. Armed with professional legal counsel, you can rest assured that you are prepared to provide the best possible testimony for your case. In the meantime, the following tips can help you prepare for your hearing:

1. Never assist the opposing counsel.

Some opposing attorneys will deliberately ask confusing or vague questions to fool the plaintiff into providing clarifying information on an issue. Do not fall for this. Whether the attorney is using confusion as a tool or is really confused and unprepared is not your concern. You must only answer the question asked and nothing else. If you do not understand the question, say so and let the opposing attorney to reword it.

2. Answer all questions unless otherwise instructed by your Denton County personal injury lawyer.

While on the stand, you are obliged to abide by the rules to answer each question an opposing lawyer or trial judge asks you. Only in rare circumstances will your attorney instruct you not to answer a question. Unless such circumstances arise, you should continue to answer the questions as directed.

3. Request to review each document that is in question prior to answering the question.

It is important for you not to assume the accuracy of a comment made by the opposing attorney. You must carefully examine the document or statement in question prior to answering questions to make sure nothing is taken out of context and it is being accurately portrayed to the jury and judge.
