What Subjects Are Likely to Be Covered At Your Deposition?

Deposition | New York Accident AttorneyDeposition are an important part of the discovery process in personal injury lawsuits. It is a tool that attorneys to both parties will use to investigate and gather the facts of their case, to help them better assess the case and prepare for trial.

Although attorneys view depositions as the best tool in gathering information, the individuals being deposed are generally hesitant and scared of being deposed. If you have received notice to be deposed, your New York accident attorney can make the experience a less anxious one by going over the different subjects and types of questions the deposing attorney may ask you.

  4. How these personal injuries have impacted your life and ability to carry on the same activities prior to your accident.
  5. Any prior accidents and resulting injuries, especially injuries to the same area that is affected in the subject accident.

Although there is no right or wrong way to answer to any question asked with regard to the subjects above, how you answer them can have a significant impact on the outcome of your case.

A few years ago I was misdiagnosed and nearly ended up becoming a quadriplegic. Three spinal fusions followed. I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of Gersowitz Libo and Korek. It was a tough time for me, but Jeff and Irene were great and helped me through it every step of the way. They were compassionate, understanding and very accommodating, yet professional and always with their fingers on the pulse. They really care about the welfare of their clients, and not just money driven. When I was unable to travel, Jeff came to me, and I live an hour from the city. This firm is well known, well established, and has earned the respect and credibility among its peers. I highly recommend the firm of Gersowitz Libo and Korek without hesitation and, in fact, I already have. My thanks go out to the entire team for a better than expected outcome!!! They get a 5 out of 5 stars from me!!read more
