One tip that can help you in your workers compensation claim, is when you have your deposition, do not think it’s a conversation and that you’re going to convince the other side if they know the truth that they will just agree to your case.
It is not a conversation, it is a typed written document that will be used against you at your hearing. So the purpose of the deposition is to help the other side gather information. It is for you to make a statement that is inconsistent with with what you say at the hearing, with what’s been written in the medical records, what’s been written in the recorded statement and also what you’ve written in your interrogatory.
So if you don’t have these same exact words in all five places, AhHa, you don’t know what you’re talking about because if you’re not saying this accurate on this irrelevant matter then that means you’re not telling the truth about how the accident occurred.
You can never win your case at a deposition, but you can definitely loose your case in a deposition.
