Giving a deposition can help to decide on several things during a case. A deposition is taken under oath, and it is a statement you give to an attorney regarding your case. The Kansas City attorney will ask you specific questions related to your case, and you must answer very precisely and truthfully. To not answer truthfully can get you in trouble with the law. The deposition is sometimes used as evidence for things such as damages resulting from the accident. It is also used to get facts from you about the accident for a testimony to use in court if needed.
Usually a deposition will happen in a court attorney’s office. The court reporter will record your statements throughout the session. You can expect this process to take up to 3 hours to complete. Watch what you say because this statement is a permanent record of what you know about the accident. Don’t exaggerate or state things incorrectly or you could face legal retaliation.
