Often times when a patient is seriously injured by a doctor and the patient feels that there is conclusive evidence that they have been the victim of medical malpractice, the patient will try to speak with their doctor. However, in some cases, trying to speak with the treating doctor is near impossible for whatever reason.
Even though this can be the case, you can still ask your doctor questions about your case before trial. One of these methods is through a deposition.
A deposition is a question and answer session. It is under oath and a court reporter or videographer is present. In addition to this the deposition is usually held in an attorney’s office. It is here that you, through your attorney, will be able to ask relevant questions to your doctor regarding your claim. Your doctor’s attorney will also be present to advise the doctor.
