What do I have to actually do during a lawsuit?
Your particular role you play in your lawsuit will be determined on a case by case basis, so it is hard to say exactly what you will have to do during your lawsuit. Sometimes plaintiffs have to give personal testimony about their medical malpractice claims; others have to provide physical evidence that proves that malpractice was involved in an injury. In any case, you should speak with your attorney about your expectations and maintain contact during all parts of the lawsuit so as to clarify what your actions should be.
The most successful way to know what you need to do or will be required to do for your lawsuit is to talk about it with your lawyer.
