10 tips for answering difficult deposition or cross examination questions

6,040 views

Published on

A soft tissue injury or spinal injury can result in permanent and painful nerve damage if swelling caused by the primary injury (e.g., a herniated or bulging disc) causes compression on the nerve. Here are common types of tricky questions with tips and examples of how to handle them. When asked multiple questions at one time, ask for a clarification or be clear which part you are responding to. Leading questions (questions that suggest how you are supposed to answer) should be expected, but do not assume the “facts” included in the question are true. When asked to describe what you saw, heard, or experienced, use factual statements. Avoid opinions and personal attacks. If asked a question with poorly defined or vague terms, ask for clarification. Request that complex questions (such as double negatives) be clarified before responding. If asked a question that is argumentative, try to answer the question without getting angry.
