Deposition Tips For Massachusetts Slip And Fall Victims

Deposition Tips For Massachusetts Slip And Fall Victims
No one wants to be involved in a slip and fall accident.  These accidents can cause very serious injuries, including broken bones and other painful injuries.  If your slip and fall claim does not settle then a lawsuit will need to be filed.  If you have an upcoming deposition, here are some basic deposition guidelines to consider if you are a plaintiff in a personal injury case:
1)  Know the date, day of the week, time, and location of the accident;
2)  Know where and when you sought medical treatment for your injuries;
3)  Do not give flowery answers; keep your answers brief and only answer the question that is asked;
4)  Do not get flustered or impatient with the defense attorney; stay calm, relaxed and confident;
5)  Review your answers to interrogatories well in advance of the deposition;
6)  Be prepared to discuss former accidents you have been involved in in the past and the injuries you sustained in those accidents;
7)  NEVER ask the defense attorney a question;
8)  Remember that everything said is under oath and is being recorded by the stenographer;
9)  Ask the defense attorney to repeat the question if you do not understand a particular question.
10)  RELAX knowing that you have brought this lawsuit and that you are therefore in the driver’s seat; it is the defendant who should be nervous, not you.
If you have further questions be sure to ask your lawyer as he/she can answer questions specific to your case.
