What the defense hopes to get out of a deposition is inconsistencies in the plaintiff’s story. These inconsistencies will then be used to impeach the plaintiff at trial to make them look like they are hiding something or lying. So how does a plaintiff prepare for a deposition when they know everything they say is under oath and if they mix up their words or do not remember something, it will later be thrown in their face? The answer is simple, prepare for the deposition with your attorney.
Deposition preparation is one of the most important things a plaintiff can do to help their case. A good plaintiff’s attorney has done enough depositions and knows your case well enough that they can predict what questions the defense attorney will ask. Going through those questions with your attorney is the best way to prepare for the onslaught of questions a defense attorney will ask. Preparing with your attorney will also decrease the stress level you will feel while giving your deposition. Being able to concisely tell your side of the story and being a presentable plaintiff is extremely important to help your case.
