When you get up to cross examine a medical expert you quickly learn that the expert has been taught and counseled to try and explain his answers at every opportunity. This could be very troublesome for a novice attorney.
The key to a good cross exam is never to give control to the witness. If you do, you will have lost a valuable opportunity to control the witness.
The best way to do that is by using short leading questions. That will severely limit the witness' ability to explain.
Watch the video to find out if that's the only thing you can do with a talkative expert witness at trial.
