What happens at a deposition?
Posted By Givens Givens Sparks || Oct 10, 2011
Unless your case settles very quickly, there is a very good chance that the insurance company's lawyer will schedule your deposition. A deposition is merely a series of answers that you will give to questions asked by the opposing attorney. You and your expert Tampa sinkhole lawyer will go to the court reporter's office or some other mutually agreed upon office to answer questions in front of a court reporter.
You will be placed under oath by the court reporter. Your Givens Law Group lawyer will be present throughout the entire procedure. This will not take place in a courtroom and neither a judge nor a jury will be present.
The opposing attorney is interested in finding out many things about you and the facts of your case. Whatever you say will be transcribed by the court reporter and may be filed in your case. If appropriate, opposing counsel will be able to confront you with your prior deposition testimony at any subsequent hearing or trial.
