This CLE webinar will prepare medical malpractice and personal injury attorneys representing victims in nursing home injury cases to depose nursing home staff and corporate representatives. The webinar will discuss best practices for effectively questioning deponents, videotaping depositions, using demonstrative exhibits, dealing with difficult nursing home staff and corporate representatives, and raising and defending objections. The panel will also discuss how to skillfully navigate Rule 30(b)(6) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure when preparing deposition notices for nursing home corporate representatives.

Description

For attorneys representing victims in nursing home injury cases, the depositions of nursing home staff and corporate representatives are among the most significant events in the case. Depositions allow medical malpractice and personal injury attorneys an opportunity to scrutinize the nursing home’s policies and practices to determine if patient care and safety are a true priority. Testimony obtained from the nursing home corporate representative during the deposition binds the nursing home.

There are several strategic moves counsel should consider when deposing nursing home staff and corporate representatives, including videotaping the depositions and using demonstrative exhibits such as autopsy reports. When preparing to depose nursing home corporate representatives, attorneys must be sure to get the scope of the deposition notice right in accordance with Rule 30(b)(6) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.

Listen as our experienced panel explains legal and practical considerations for medical malpractice and personal injury attorneys when preparing for and conducting depositions of nursing home staff and corporate representatives in nursing home injury cases. The panelists will share useful insights on the strategic and effective use of these depositions.
