The key to a successful deposition is being prepared. When you are prepared, you will be more confident in providing proper information to the defense so as not to undermine the success of your case. Your New York accident lawyer will help you prepare by meeting with you in advance of your deposition and provide you with specific tips to consider on the day of your deposition.
Below are five important tips that your lawyer will want you to keep in mind for a successful deposition:
- Know the facts of your case. In order to provide accurate answers to detailed questions that defense lawyers will typically ask, it is imperative that you are intimately familiar with the facts of your case.
- Never volunteer information unless you are specifically asked to do so. You should only answer the question that is specifically being asked and not provide more information than necessary.
- Listen to question before answering. Wait until the deposing attorney has completely asked the question. If you do not know what the question is, you will not know how to answer it.
- If you do not understand the question being asked, do not answer it. You can either ask the deposing attorney or your own New York accident lawyer for further clarification.
- Be courteous to the deposing attorney.
