What Is A Deposition?

If you’ve been injured in New York, you may be asked by the insurance company to undergo a deposition. Watch this video by experienced New York personal injury attorney Eric Shaevitz to learn what a deposition is and how it may impact your injury case.

Depositions are when the defense attorney or the plaintiff attorney asks questions about the case. They ask extensive questions to the plaintiff, to the witnesses, to the defendants to see what happened in the case.

A deposition helps both sides get a complete understanding of what occurred and who was involved. Some depositions can include video recordings and some rely on written transcripts of the sworn statements which can be used as evidence in court should the case go to trial.
