What Can I Expect If Called as a Witness?

Fairfax Injury Lawyer Brien Roche Addresses What Can I Expect If Called As A Witness

Brien Roche

As a witness, you are being called upon to state what you know. The rules of evidence will normally govern exactly what you can be asked and what you can say. As a result in most cases you are going to be asked questions about things you have personal knowledge of. You may be asked about documents you have some info about.

In any trial or hearing the evidence presented comes in two forms. It is either oral statements or objects. Those objects may be pieces of paper. They may be other objects. Testimony is a person testifying as to what they know about an event or matter. Likewise a document can be evidence of what that person knows. It may be a substitute for further testimony on that subject.
