So you have been injured and you are wondering what is one way you can show the jury that you are hurt and cannot live and do the things you use to do. I would like to explain to you one way you can show a jury how injured you are through the use of a before and after witness.

You are probably wondering what is a before and after witness? A before and after witness is a witness who can explain to the jury all the things you could do before your injury and what you can do now.

For example, let’s say that before your leg operation and resulting nerve damage you were the organ player for your church. You played for the adult and children choirs. But now since the nerve damage in your leg, you can no longer play. You can have a church member come and testify as to this fact. This type of testimony is very powerful because it allows the jury to not only hear about how your life was before the injury, but it allows the jury to hear specifically how the injury has impacted your life.

So why am I sharing this very important information with? Because chances are you have been the victim of medical malpractice here in Maryland. Or you have been in a very bad car collision and you are looking for help.
