Your deposition is very important. It is your only chance to let the other side see what a good witness you are.
It is your only chance before settlement or trial to make a good impression, so a good lawyer gets his client ready for it.
I never let my client appear for his deposition without sitting in a room with him and going through the questions the other lawyer will ask, and why. I listen to my client’s answers.
I don’t tell my client what to say, but there are a lot of different ways to answer a question, and you should have a chance to talk about these with your lawyer.
Depending on how extensive your damages are, this can take anywhere from a single half hour session to two or three sessions of an hour each. And you deserve the chance to meet with your lawyer and ask him any questions you may have about anything in your case.
I have been a lawyer over 30 years. I always meet with my client before a deposition, and discuss what he is going to say thoroughly. If you have a personal injury case in Cincinnati, Ohio or if you want to know what your lawsuit is worth, talk with an experienced Cincinnati Personal Injury Lawyer about the case. Call me, William Strubbe, at 513-621-4775.
Because all situations are different, and because there may be other facts pertaining to your case that I don’t know about, you should not rely on this answer for legal advice. I am not your attorney, and no lawyer client relationship has been formed.
