SO YOU ARE ABOUT TO BE DEPOSED (OR VIOLENTLY OVERTHROWN): HOW TO PREPARE & WHAT TO EXPECT
Roy A. Mura, Esq, Mura Law Group
The claims team and you have done a great job investigating the reported loss and associated injury claims, and your investigation fully support the claim decision. But now the claim has gone into suit, and you have been noticed for a deposition. How should you prepare and what should you expect? Whether you’ve been deposed (or violently overthrown) before or not, learn Roy’s Five Finger Answer Choice Method and some Do’s and Don’ts of answering disposition questions. Where you’ve yet to experience the thrills and chills of the deposition hot seat or are simply looking forward to your next opportunity to meet with claimant’s counsel, you’ll leave this session better prepared for your first or next deposition.
