When you file a Pennsylvania slip and fall claim, you’ll likely have to work with a Philadelphia premises liability lawyer and provide a deposition, in which you answer the defending attorney’s questions while under oath. It’s important to take the time to discuss any concerns you have about the deposition with your attorney beforehand. 

5 Tips for a Pennsylvania Slip and Fall Deposition

Understand that mistakes such as speaking untruthfully or giving speculative answers can hurt your case and be used against you. 
  • Try not to over-prepare. Do your best to relax; too much study or practice could actually work against you. 
  • Don’t discuss your case or your deposition with anyone other than the attorneys.  
  • When asked a question, take a moment to stop and think clearly before answering
  • If you don’t understand what’s being asked, you can ask the attorney to rephrase or repeat the question. 
  • If you don’t know the answer to a question, don’t speculate; instead, simply say “I don’t know.”  
Above all, when you’re giving a deposition for your Pennsylvania slip and fall case, be sure to speak clearly, calmly and honesty. If you have any questions specific to your case, run them by your Philadelphia premises liability lawyer, who’ll be able to address your concerns and help you avoid jeopardizing your claim.
