- In deposition
As a plaintiff in a personal injury lawsuit, you will probably be required to give a deposition at some point before the trial. While you must take the process seriously, with an experienced Orange County personal injury attorney on your side, you need not be too worried. Your attorney will take the time to prepare you and make sure you give the best testimony possible.
Review of Anticipated Topics
Part of this preparation involves going over the common topics for depositions. The topics you can anticipate will be covered during your deposition in order to minimize the odds that you will be caught off-guard. Obviously, the specifics will vary from case to case, but the same broad topics tend to be covered in every deposition.
Questions About Your Background
Generally, expect to answer a lot of questions regarding your background. The opposing attorney will need to know where you live, what your marital status is, what you do for a living, where you went to school, etc. You will need to provide information regarding your history, including your employment history, medical history, and if applicable, criminal history. You will also have to answer a lot of questions regarding your leisure time: whether you play sports, whether you travel, etc. You will also be asked how each of these things has changed as a result of your injury.
