What You Should Know About The Deposition Process In An Auto Accident

When filing an auto accident lawsuit, depositions will be taken by both your attorney and that of the opposition. A deposition is essentially when you tell your side of the story. The attorney will ask everyone to explain what occurred and will then ask specific questions. The opposition's attorney will then do the same. You should always tell the absolute truth when giving your deposition.

Your auto accident attorney will explain the process before it begins. If you do not understand a question that your attorney or the opposition's attorney has asked, then you must ask for a clarification. If you do understand a question but believe that it could be interpreted in more than one way, it is best to repeat the question in your own words.

When you are finished with the depositions, your auto accident attorney will be able to show you where things stand from a legal perspective and how the defense will likely present their case. Your attorney will be able to advise you on what to do next regarding your lawsuit. It is absolutely crucial that you follow the advice of your attorney. You must be honest with your attorney about your relevant history. I've you've ever been pulled over for DWI or have a spotty driving history, you will do better to inform your auto accident attorney about these things. You do not want these issues to be a surprise if they come up during a deposition. Never lie to your attorney!

A deposition will give you the opportunity to observe your attorney in action. You will be able to see how well he operates and evaluate him. If the deposition process causes you to question your auto accident attorney's abilities, then you may need to find another attorney.

After the deposition takes place, it is possible that the opposition might be interested in discussing a settlement. At this point you should listen very closely to your auto accident attorney's advice. You should ask them why they feel the way they do about your settlement and whether or not you are being offered a fair settlement.
