My workers’ compensation lawyer says I have a deposition this week. Can I just skip it?

When you file a workers’ compensation claim in Georgia, more than likely, the defense attorney is going to schedule your deposition. It’s your opportunity to answer questions about your injury and its aftermath while showing what a great witness you’ll make at any upcoming hearing.

While you may not want to spend a couple of hours at my office being deposed by the insurance company’s attorney, it’s usually a prerequisite to getting your case resolved by litigation or settling, so don’t decide to skip it. It’s not a “meeting” or “conference.” It’s a deposition–a question and answer session that’s recorded and is given under oath.

Please don’t miss your deposition.
