What is a deposition?
A deposition is a time where the parties to the case coming are asking a person under oath different questions as it relates to the case. An easy example is a deposition that I would take of the driver who hit my client. I’ll be asking about different aspects of what occurred that day. What were they doing before the accident? Why did they run into my client with their car? What was discussed at the scene, whether there’s photographs or are there documents available? Even though it’s in an informal setting, it’s very often in a conference room or a court reporter’s office or at my own office, it’s still a recorded statement under oath that we can use in court.
