What Happens During Medical Deposition
A medical deposition is sworn testimony that takes place before all parties and their attorneys. The deposition may also take place on video instead of in-person. During the deposition, the attorneys will evaluate and establish our credibility as witnesses. It is normal procedure for other attorneys to ask about a physician’s qualifications during testimony. Because the IME Care Center staff is comprised of Board-certified physicians and certified healthcare professionals, our collective reputation for reliability is well-established.
Prior to testimony, we’ll prepare for deposition by reviewing the medical records and meeting with counsel. This medical records review will include an evaluation of preexisting conditions and treatment for the current injury or illness. We may also perform an independent medical examination, which may or may not include testing, to form an unbiased opinion of the plaintiff’s medical status. During the deposition, The IME Care Center will answer the questions asked truthfully and thoroughly.
Some commonly discussed topics during medical depositions include:
- Medical background—These questions cover topics such as education, licensure, certifications and professional memberships. It may also include hospital affiliations or teaching responsibilities.
- Basic experience—These questions may ask about published research or ongoing studies. They may also include questions about past experiences testifying during lawsuits.
- Experience with the relevant medical issue— The attorneys may ask about our experience with the condition or injury as well as treatment. These questions typically make up the bulk of the testimony. Our professionals will be prepared to thoroughly and objectively discuss the medical status of the plaintiff. We’ll also be prepared to explain information in the medical record, confidently and accurately.
