DEPOSITIONS

ARIZONA WORKMANS COMP DEPOSITIONS
WHY DO THEY WANT TO KNOW THAT???


It is standard procedure for the workers comp insurance carrier to want to take your deposition. A deposition is merely a recorded statement given under oath. It is important at the time to carefully listen to the question being asked and to tell the truth. I have clients all the time wanting to know why a question was asked. It can be for several reasons. You have to realize that this may be the only time the attorney gets to ask questions. They are permitted to ask questions that might lead to admissible questions. That means that some of the questions are just a fishing expedition. Sometimes they find out information they would not have known otherwise. Another reason they may be asking a question is to assess the case and report back to their client. Their client may want to know how much is at stake and what the future will hold for them. The attorney needs certain information to assess the case value. For instance, they may want to know if you have ever been convicted of a felony. They may be trying to determine if there are jobs out there that you could perform, even if its not your old job. One of the standard jobs they use is a security guard. If you have had a felony in your past, they cannot use that job as one with a felony cannot be a security guard. Again, while you may get upset with the questions, a lot of times it has to do with the future and the case status. If you have received notice that the attorney representing the workman's comp insurance company want to take your deposition, you are now in litigation. It is probably best to run your case by an experienced worker's comp. specialist here in Arizona. We offer free phone consultations.
