This CLE webinar will prepare medical malpractice and personal injury attorneys representing victims or defendants in nursing home injury cases to take or defend the depositions of expert witnesses. The panel will discuss best practices for preparing your expert for deposition, effectively questioning the opposing party's expert, raising or defending objections, and leveraging the information obtained at the deposition during trial or settlement negotiations.

Description

In nursing home injury cases, expert witnesses--frequently doctors, nurses, facility directors, geriatric experts or rehabilitation therapists--are essential to prove that the nursing home's negligence caused the injury at issue. The deposition of these experts is a crucial discovery tool and critical to the outcome of the case.

Preparing your expert, effectively questioning the opposing party's expert, and raising timely objections directly impact the amount and value of the information obtained during the deposition. Also, medical malpractice and personal injury attorneys must have a carefully planned approach for leveraging the information gained from expert depositions during trial or settlement negotiations.

Listen as our experienced panel explains legal and practical considerations for medical malpractice and personal injury attorneys when taking or defending depositions of expert witnesses in nursing home injury cases.
