I am involved in an assault case. Defendant pled giulty to 3rd degree assualt misdeameanor. I am currently suing for damages.
If subpoenaed, the doctor is not required to give any expert opinion testimony ( for example as to the permanency of your injury or the percentage of disability you may have). For that you will need to pay him/her for the expert testimony. Don't be "penny wise and pound foolish". If you subpoena your doctor, you are basically "telegraphing" to the defense that you do no have control of your expert, a sign of weakness in the case.
