What to Know Before Giving a Deposition For somebody who’s got a claim and there’s a lawsuit arising out of the claim for personal injury, the other side potentially does have the right to take your deposition. That’s just basically testimony under oath in a room not at the courthouse. There’ll be a court reporter there taking down all that’s said in the question and answer session with the other side.

If you have a good legal team on your behalf, you will have a meeting in advance of that deposition to talk about the process, to talk about how it is you can give favorable testimony, and how to give a good deposition.
