Can You Make Changes To Your Deposition?

Can You Make Changes To Your Deposition?

Sometimes deposition transcripts contain questions that are mistyped or do not make sense. When reviewing a deposition transcript, clients often find that they would like to modify questions asked, but they are only allowed to change their answers. Further, such changes need to be done in a timely manner.

Any changes to be made to your transcript should go through your attorney. Many times, a witness will be warned that changes to a deposition will be subject to commenting later in the case. This is one reason why it is important for your attorney to check any changes before a transcript is returned to the deposition officer.

Discussing changes with your attorney can avoid later embarrassment, and your attorney may determine that something does not need to be changed. Watch the video to learn more.
