Charlotte Personal Injury Attorney Matt Arnold answers the question: How does the law of contributory negligence play a role in my case?
It can be nerve-wracking to testify in open court. Even individuals with no issues or anxiety about public speaking can find themselves stressed about testifying in their personal injury case. In an ideal situation, everything could be handled by your personal injury attorney and you would have to say little or nothing at all during the process. Unfortunately this is not always the case and it is not surprising that a court would want to hear from the individual at the center of the case. You will know if you are expected to testify ahead of time and there are things you can keep in mind should you find yourself testifying during a personal injury case.
