In a civil lawsuit, any party to the lawsuit can require that a witness or other party submit to an out-of-court examination, under oath, before a court reporter. This is known as a deposition. Similar to testifying in court, the person being deposed (the deponent) is asked questions by the lawyers to gain information to be used at trial of the matter. The difference is that a deposition takes place outside of the courtroom, often many months before trial.
Often times, a personal injury victim is called for a deposition by the opposing side, in an attempt to diminish the claimed injuries and damages of the victim. Here are some pointers to help you make your deposition more advantageous for you and your case:
