Every BI plaintiff’s attorney needs to master this technique, and this Spouse’s BI Testimony Checklist leads you in the technique.
If you are the defendant’s attorney

And most defense attorneys never take the time to develop a complete checklist of the injury points they can cover with the plaintiff’s spouse at the deposition.
But that does not have to be you.
