Will I Have to Testify?

Many people are understandably nervous about testifying at trial and want to avoid it. Nevertheless, it is likely you need to testify for a couple of reasons:

  • You might have relevant information about your loved one’s death. For example, if he or she died during surgery, you might have spoken to the doctor and know information about the medical treatment your loved one received.
  • You need to establish the value of your non-economic losses, such as the loss of companionship and care. This requires that you offer some testimony about your relationship with your loved one.

By working with experienced attorneys, you can make the process of testifying easier. Also, an experienced Las Vegas wrongful death attorney can help settle the case before a trial is even necessary, which will guarantee you some money without the stress of trial.
