nursing home abuse victim testify in courtWe understand why you are asking this question. Your loved one has been put through enough stress and suffering during a time in her life when she should be living comfortably. Even though filing a nursing home abuse lawsuit is important and she deserves a financial recovery, you do not want to put her through the additional emotional and physical stress that may occur if she has to testify in court.

Not All Nursing Home Abuse Victims Have to Testify

Most nursing home abuse and negligence cases settle before trial. If this happens, your loved one will not need to testify during a court trial.

If the case does go to trial, all evidence will be considered before determining whether or not your loved one should take the stand. The quality of that evidence and the physical and emotional consequences of testifying will all be considered before a decision is made about whether your loved one should testify.
