Do I need to attend court even though I've left the job it relates to?

  • Do I need to attend court even though I've left the job it relates to?

    The company I work for received a personal injury claim some time ago relating to a member of staff that I managed. There seems to be a chance the claim will go to court sometime next spring and my employer decided I should be available for any potential court case as I have the most background knowledge of the incident and was the manager at the time the incident occurred (although it wasn't my fault, the company has said I wasn't to blame and I wasn't on site that day). However, I will be leaving the company at the end of the month. If the claim does end up going to court can I be compelled to go? I really don't want to and in all honesty I think the member of staff involved was probably negligent in his actions and the claimant has a good case. What should I do if the company asks me to go?
