Gerry's Educational Medical Malpractice Website
Your medical malpractice case is coming up for trial. You have questions about closing arguments and which attorney goes first.
You know that during opening arguments the plaintiff's attorney, the lawyer who represents the injured victim has an opportunity to speak to the jury first.
The defense lawyer follows immediately afterwards.
At the end of the trial, after all testimony has been concluded, all the lawyers have an opportunity to speak to the jury one last time in what is commonly known as closing arguments.
The judge determines approximately how much time to allocate to each attorney to give closing remarks. But you want to know "Which lawyer goes first?"
You might think that the plaintiff's attorney would go first again just like on opening arguments. You might think that the plaintiff's attorney would go second after the defense lawyer has a chance to speak to the jury.
Would you like to know what really happens in a medical malpractice trial in New York?
The answer is that during closing arguments the defense lawyers have an opportunity to speak to the jury first. After they are finished with their closing remarks, the plaintiff's attorney follows with his closing remarks.
