What if the police officer was not called as a witness?
In a Georgia injury case, Police officers may only testify about what they saw and what was said to them. If the police officer did not witness the accident, he or she may not be able to say anything valuable to the Jury and may not testify. Generally speaking, a police officer who did not witness an accident is not allowed to give his or opinion about who caused the crash. The Millar Law Firm believes that police officers time is very valuable and the officer should not be called unless there is a good reason to do so.
