Gerry's New York Medical Malpractice Website
At trial it is important to get the doctor's medical records into evidence. Otherwise, the jury will not be able to evaluate the treatment rendered by the doctor. In addition, the doctor's records establish what was recorded at the time of treatment.
How exactly do you get an office record into evidence?
The first thing is to establish during pretrial testimony of the doctor during his question-and-answer session, known as a deposition, that these are the patient's records and they are kept in the ordinary course of business.
Once the doctor has authenticated and shown that the patient's records were made at or about the time of treatment, and were kept as part of standard office practice, then we can usually get the defense lawyer to agree and stipulate that the original records can and will be admitted into evidence.
