Can I Ask Judge to Lock Courtroom Door If Facts of YOUR Case are EMBARRASSING? NY Attorney Explains

Can I Ask Judge to Lock Courtroom Door If Facts of YOUR Case are EMBARRASSING? NY Medical Malpractice Attorney Gerry Oginski Explains

There’s something in your past that you’re ashamed of.
It’s uncomfortable for you to talk about.
You’d rather ignore it.

But now your medical malpractice case is coming up for trial in New York. It’s so awkward that you don’t want anyone to hear about. Not the judge. Not the opposing lawyer. Not your spouse and certainly not the jury.

You don’t want strangers to learn about it.
You don’t want your relatives to hear about it.
YOu want to make sure that when you testify, the judge locks the courtroom door to actually show you how he suffered these terrible injuries.

The reality is that the judge will NOT lock the courtroom door.
The courtrooms are open to the public.
Anyone can come in and sit down and observe.

At any time.
For any reason.

Your facts are embarrassing?
Get over it.
You don’t want your sex life exposed during trial?

Then don’t bring a claim that your injuries have affected you and your spouse. It’s that simple.

Taking a medication for depression that you don’t want your friends, family or co-workers to know about? Then don’t bring that part of the claim that your injuries exacerbated your pre-existing psychiatric problems.

The reality is that everybody is embarrassed about something in their lives or their past. But when you bring a lawsuit against your careless doctor claiming that he caused you significant harm and injury, your history and your medical condition are now an open book.

Open to the litigants.
Open to the attorneys.
Open to anyone who happens to be in the courtroom when this information is revealed during testimony.

You have to make a decision, before trial, whether you’re comfortable with having those embarrassing facts revealed so that you can show the jury how your injuries have affected you on a daily basis.

If you have legal questions and your matter happened here in New York and you’re thinking about bringing a lawsuit, I invite you to pick up the phone and call me at 516-487-8207 or by email at Gerry@Oginski-Law.com. This is what I do every day and I’d be happy to chat with you.
