WEBINAR: Questions? Anyone? Bueller? – Defending the Employer and Adjuster’s Deposition
The discovery procedures in workers’ compensation claims in Georgia are governed by the provisions of the Civil Practice Act of Georgia. Pursuant to O.C.G.A. § 9-11-30, after commencement of legal action, any party may take the deposition of any person, including a party, by oral examination. While claimants are deposed in nearly every litigated claim, it is less often that claimant’s attorneys schedule the depositions of employers and adjusters. However, the Civil Practice Act grants the claimant’s attorneys the ability to take these depositions. Because O.C.G.A. § 9-11-32 states that deposition testimony can be used against a party at a hearing, the attorneys in this webinar will cover the rules regarding depositions and what to expect should you be deposed.
The webinar will offer one general continuing education credit for attendees registered with the Georgia Department of Insurance (pending approval).
