Boston Personal Injury Attorneys Share 3 Common Questions Asked During a Deposition, Boston, Massachusetts

A deposition is a normal part of any personal injury case. While the idea of being deposed may be scary and nerve-wracking, it's important to remember that this is just standard procedure in any civil litigation, and it offers you a chance to give your side of the story. By knowing some common questions, you can reduce your anxiety and be better prepared. To help, the personal injury attorneys at Bellotti Law Group, PC, in Boston, MA, discuss three typical questions asked during a deposition.

Prepare Yourself With These Deposition Questions

1. What Illnesses, Injuries, or Other Health Conditions Have You Had?

personal injury attorneyIt may seem irrelevant, but opposing counsel will usually want to know what medical issues you've had in your life other than your current injury. They will ask about every doctor you've seen and hospital or clinic visited. The questioning can be tedious and feel intrusive, but stay calm and be thorough in your answers. When you don't remember something or can't recall details, let the attorney asking the questions know, and often you won't be pressed on the matter.

2. What Happened in the Moments Before, During, & After Your Personal Injury?

This question gives you the opportunity to state the facts of your case: the what, where, when, how, and why. The lawyer conducting the deposition will often guide you through your recollection of the series of events. Be as detailed as possible and prepared to give more elaboration or specific information as requested.

3. How Is Your Injury Impacting Your Life?

If your injury is serious enough to warrant a lawsuit, its impact on your life is typically a major one. Discuss your condition in depth, and describe the ways it is limiting your ability to live comfortably, work and support yourself, and maintain relationships with your family and friends. In the days leading up to your deposition, your personal injury attorney will help you find the right words and statements to most accurately illustrate your situation and do so in a compelling manner.
