- 15 Vital Questions. You get the 15 vital, and crafted, questions you should ask – every time – if you want to put medical records into evidence via deposition testimony. It not only is useful for written depositions, the questions in this form also are your checklist on the oral deposition of any medical witness “live”, such as the treating doctor, when he/she has medical records you want to put into evidence!
- Time. A good legal form saves you time. Don’t reinvent the wheel, and don’t waste time when you have more important things to do.
- A “Best Practice”: You can delegate the “draft the written questions to the medical records custodian” part of your bodily injury practice. Forms allow you to efficiently delegate to your secretary or legal assistant the job of preparing the questions you need to serve for a deposition on written interrogatories of the medical records custodian.
Use a form to auto-pilot the process of drafting written questions that invite the answers you need from medical records custodians. Of course, as a lawyer, you must determine for yourself our form’s fitness for your purpose, and apply your professional legal skills to determine the legal requirements of your local jurisdiction. But 99% of the time, these questions are all you need to submit to get what you want.
