Can attorney force me to act as Expert?

  1. I was deposed in an infant damage case; the attorney didn't want to ask me about any of the care I provided, but wanted me to testify as to the nurse's care who followed me (and who was at the delivery)!!

    My attorney refused to let me testify as an Expert and after the deposition I was dropped from the case as a defendent, BUT both sides have said I'll have to testify as a fact witness.

    Can someone give me a resource who can help me formulate a reply as to why I can't (won't) testify as an Expert in this case if (as I suspect) the Plaintiff's attorney will try to force me to testify at trial as an expert?

    Thanks in advance!!
