Subjects to Cover in a Slip and Fall Deposition
In order to give an effective deposition, it is important to anticipate the topics that the defendant’s attorney will ask you. This is easier than it sounds, defense attorneys tend to cover the same topics in every case. An experienced Orange County personal injury attorney will be able to coach you so that none of the questions will catch you off guard.
Unsurprisingly, you will be asked a great deal of questions regarding your actual accident. You will be asked to recount your accident. You will be expected to include such details as the exact location where it happened, the manner in which your body moved during the fall, the part of your body that hit the ground first, and the position you were in immediately before and after the fall. Finally, you will be asked about the exact cause of the fall. Did you slip on something? Was the floor uneven? Did you trip on an object? You will also be asked whether the causes of your fall were visible or apparent before you fall.
You will also be asked about any maintenance or equipment defects that could have contributed to your accident. You will be asked to describe the defect in detail and how it contributed to your accident. You will also be asked when you noticed the defects and whether or not you informed the defendant of the defects before your accident.
