Deposition Preparation for Healthcare Professionals
Healthcare professionals may be subject to a medical malpractice lawsuit at any time in their career. This exposure arises through litigation in which they are named as defendants or through a legal action against a healthcare facility. In addition, even a healthcare professional that is not named in a lawsuit may be called as a witness in a pre-trial deposition.
The deposition is one of the most critical stages of litigation, and it can either support or hinder a successful legal defense. If you are called to give a deposition, you should prepare as if you are going to testify before a judge and jury.
