Can My Deposition Be Used During My Trial?
Chris Finney, Trial Attorney
For the most part yes, your deposition can be used at your trial. Many times we will play a doctor’s deposition by video and that is an example of using a deposition at trial.
If you are a plaintiff and make a contradictory statement and it contradicts something you had said in your deposition your deposition can then be used to impeach or go after and attack your creditability on your new statement at trial.
So, the simple short answer is yes, the deposition can be used at trail.
