Depositions are a standard part of most civil lawsuits in which the claimant and defendant may be questioned by the opposing party. Their statements will be recorded, and the answers they provide may be used as a form of evidence later in the case. Depositions can gather information about the incident that caused the injury, the injury itself, and how healthy the claimant was prior to the incident. It’s important for a claimant to take this process very seriously and prepare for the questions beforehand.
