Discovery: What are depositions?
A deposition is a proceeding in the litigation of your case where sworn testimony is taken by a court reporter with all attorneys and parties present. The deposition may be used at trial so it is very important for you to take this part of your case seriously. There are many “dos and don’ts” concerning how to answer questions during a deposition and at Riddle & Brantley, LLP, we make sure that our clients are well prepared to honestly and effectively answer questions in a deposition. Depositions are taken of the parties, witnesses and medical providers. Our attorneys are always well prepared for these as the testimony and facts elicited can and will be used at trial.
