Medical Malpractice Deposition: Why Did I Stop Asking Questions After Only 30 Minutes?
NY Medical Malpractice & Personal Injury Lawyer Gerry Oginski Explains
First, what is a deposition?
It’s a question and answer session that happens in an attorney’s conference room. There’s no judge there. There’s no jury there either.
I will be there.
The defense lawyer will be there.
And the doctor whom you sued will be there.
That’s it. Almost.
There’s also a court stenographer who will be there to record all of my questions and all of your answers.
The answers that the doctor gives represents his sworn testimony and carries the same exact weight as if he’s testifying at trial in front of a jury.
In this particular case, it became obvious after only thirty minutes of questioning this doctor that he did absolutely nothing wrong. In that case, I decided not to ask the doctor any more questions and ended this pretrial deposition.
The doctor was shocked I had finished so early.
The defense attorney was surprised I had no more questions.
I don’t need to drag out questioning for hours if it’s obvious the doctor did nothing wrong.
