Created on April 27, 2018





Depositions in nursing home cases are different than all other personal injury/medical malpractice cases as you have all the information you need prior to the deposition in order to develop and refine your theory of the case. These depositions follow common patterns and are a powerful weapon when they are utilized to anticipate, undermine and use against your opponent.

This program, presented by attorney Jordan Powell, will discuss effective deposition strategies in nursing home cases with a focus on gathering the necessary testimony to make it very difficult for the nursing home to offer a defense. Some of the common themes, common defenses, and relevant statutes will be discussed.
