The Act provides that in civil actions when the burden of proof rests on the plaintiff, the plaintiff shall be entitled to make the opening and concluding arguments. The Act entitles the defendant to make opening and concluding arguments if the defendant does not introduce any evidence or if the defendant admits the prima facie case. The Act further provides that in a civil action for personal injury, the defendant shall not be deemed to have admitted a prima facie case if the defendant introduces evidence concerning the extent of damages, other than during cross-examination of the plaintiff and the plaintiff's witnesses.
