What is a deposition?
Also known as an examination before trial, a deposition is a time when you take questions under oath. If you file a personal injury case, you may have to undergo a deposition during which the defendant’s lawyer will ask you questions regarding your background and the case itself.
As well as the defendant’s lawyer, your own attorney will be present during the deposition, and a stenographer may also be present to record the actions. This way, there is a record of you keeping to your story since you will probably be asked the same questions during your trial.
Your personal injury attorney should help you prepare for your deposition so that you do not accidentally say something that lets the defendant off the hook. If you are looking for a responsible Danville personal injury lawyer, contact Spiros Law, P.C., today by calling (217) 443-4343.
