OK, this is lame, but I have this burning question about something I saw on TV a while back. It’s the neck injury from central casting, where a guy is in court suing someone for a trumped up neck injury which is probably BS, wearing a neckbrace. During the middle of the proceedings, some clever guy drops a briefcase, making a loud noise, causing the supposed broke-neck to swivel his head around at the source of the noise.
So, presumably, everyone sees this person exercise his neck in a range of motion presumably made impossible by his injury. But neither the judge nor any of the attorneys are medical experts, so can they really say he has somehow invalidated his testimony? In real life, what would happen in this situation?
