Why is a letter written by my Doctor to my lawyer being read to the Jury?

Published February 6, 2018 by Bruce Millar

Georgia law allows an injured person to read a special report from the doctor called a “Medical Narrative,“ to the Jury instead of paying for the doctor as a witness. A medical narrative can only be read after the Court has pre-approved this Report. The medical narrative is usually written as a letter from a doctor to a lawyer and is considered equal to live testimony.
