Depositions are a common legal tool used in auto accident injury claims to gather evidence and information from parties involved in the case. A deposition is a sworn, out-of-court testimony that is given under oath and recorded by a court reporter. The testimony given in a deposition can be used as evidence in court.
Deposition of the Plaintiff: The Plaintiff (injured party) will be deposed by the defense attorney to ask questions about the accident and the injuries sustained. The Plaintiff will be asked to provide detailed information about the accident, the extent of their injuries, and any medical treatment they have received. The Plaintiff will also be asked about any prior accidents or injuries and any other information that may be relevant to the case.
Deposition of the Defendant: The Defendant (the person or party being sued) will also be deposed by the Plaintiff's attorney. The Defendant will be asked about the accident, their version of events, and any information that may be relevant to the case. The Defendant will also be asked about any prior accidents or incidents and any other information that may be relevant to the case.
Deposition of Witnesses: Any witnesses to the accident will also be deposed. Witnesses will be asked to provide information about what they saw and heard at the time of the accident. Their testimony can be used to establish liability and to refute the testimony of other witnesses.
Deposition of Experts: Experts such as accident reconstructionist, medical experts, and vocational expert may be deposed by either side in order to provide expert testimony on specific aspects of the case, such as the cause of the accident, the extent of the injuries, or the future impact of the injuries on the plaintiff's life.
