Do you need to establish that the truck driver was (or was not) was under the control of the company (so as to impute the negligence of the driver to the company)?
Whichever side of the case you are on: it is the way you handle the driver’s deposition that will establish that the driver was (or was not) under the control of the defendant company.
Use our Deposition Checklist on both sides of the case.
Deposition (or trial) checklist about the effective control of a driver.
Use this legal form checklist as a additional part of the deposition of the driver (or on the defense side, for preparing that driver for his deposition) This form also can be used if you are deposing (or preparing) a company executive on the question of the company’s control.
This checklist is designed for taking either the deposition of either the vehicle driver, or the defendant company’s executive, to establish that the company was in control of the driver at the time of the MVA. However, if you are a defense lawyer, use this checklist for preparation of the defense witness who is being deposed, to assure that your defense witness has thought about the items likely to be asked. This checklist has the items that every plaintiff’s attorney should ask about in a deposition, and to which every defendant’s attorney should have prepared her client to respond appropriately.
And of course, this deposition checklist also works as a checklist for trial questions or preparation of trial witnesses.
Most attorneys have no real system to prepare for a deposition on the issue of defendant’s master-servant control of the truck and truck driver involved in a truck accident. They waste time, and they miss issues and questions they should ask.
But that doesn’t have to be you.
My Deposition Checklist – Company’s Control of Driver is a mentor in a box, coaching you on the master-servant fact points in a truck accident. Points you should consider in the MVA truck case and during your examination of the target defense witness. (Or if you are the responding attorney, telling you the points on which you need to prepare your witness to stand up to the questions properly.)
Just think. for a few dollars you get a coach’s advice that would take an hour for the coach to dictate. This is certainly one of the best investments you can make to get quick answers to the content and organization of questions you need to ask the witness.
Three big points:
- The Deposition Checklist on Company’s Control of Driver will make you better organized, in half the time you otherwise would spend. (Some attorneys will find they are saving 60, 70, even 75% of the deposition preparation time.)
