What Is Going To Be Asked At My Car Accident Depositon Case?
This is a common question among injured victims of Car Accident. Assume for the moment that you or a loved on has a Personal Injury claim from a Car Accident and for a number of possible reasons, your claim does not settle and a law suit is filed on your behalf. At this point , you are looking at the likelihood that the at fault driver's lawyer (usually appointed by an insurance company) will be asking to take your deposition. A deposition is a tool that lawyers use to learn about your case from you. It is like a statement but it is more formal. There is a court reporter with a steno machine (taking down what we say word for word) just like in an actual court room. However, it is almost always in a lawyer's office and at deposition, you are asked number of questions, some personal, about your life and the claim that you are bringing. The deposition is just like you being on a witness stand in court without the stand and the court room. It is widely thought by most trial lawyers as one of the most important events in a person's case. At the law offices of Greg Prosmushkin, PC, our attorneys and staff prepare you for your deposition testimony. We are present at the deposition and we make sure appropriate questions are being asked. We will be right next to you at that table. Should you have any questions about your own case or a good friend or loved one's case, please call us. The consultation is absolutely free.
Here are some of the areas that you will likely be asked about:
Prior accidents where you claimed injury
Prior injury without it being an accident
Prior health conditions or disabilities
Any crimes or felonies committed within the past 10 years
The facts of the accident where you are making a claim
Your driving record
Whether you wear glasses or other corrective lens
What medical treatment you received
What you are currently doing for your injuries in terms of a doctor or therapy
Information about what types of treatment you underwent
Whether you plan to get treatment in the future
They will ask you all about your past employment and whether you lost money as a result of the accident and the injuries
