The 10 Biggest Mistakes Experts Make During Depositions:"The discovery depositions of expert witnesses are increasingly playing an important role in the litigation process. Under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 26 (4) A: “A party may depose any person who has been identified as an expert whose opinions may be presented at trial.” With this in mind, we turn to the ten biggest mistakes experts make during their depositions. #1 – Waiving The Reading of Signing Of The Deposition Transcript At the start of most depositions, counsel will agree on stipulations. Use of the most common stipulation is that the deponent waives the right to read and sign the deposition transcript. The expert who is interested in accuracy should not agree to this waiver lightly. Experts who agree to waive the reading and signing are agreeing to a document’s accuracy without even seeing the document."

10 Biggest Mistakes Physicians Make in Writing Their IME Reports:"The Independent Medical Evaluation (IME) reports that physicians prepare are playing an increasingly important role in workers' compensation cases, personal injury litigation, and long-term disability claims. Each year physicians prepare hundreds of thousands of IME reports which are read and utilized by judges, hearing officers, and plaintiff and defense attorneys to decide and settle claims. Physicians are frequently called upon at depositions, hearings, or trials to support, justify, and defend each and every word of their IME reports. With this in mind, we turn to the 10 biggest mistakes physicians make in writing their IME reports."

Advice on Answering Questions at Depositions:"Avoid Absolute Words You are well advised to avoid, where possible, absolute words such as "always" and "never." Absolute words are frequently an invitation to, and fertile grounds for, cross-examination by counsel. Counsel will attempt to damage your credibility by first getting you to make an absolute statement. She will then use counterexamples in an effort to show the falsity of your statement.

Connecting with the Jury:"In jury trials, the jury ultimately decides the case. Their job is to determine the facts of the case. A crucial part of this is determining the credibility of the witnesses. This includes expert witnesses. As such, it is of the highest importance that experts are able to communicate with the jury in a credible and persuasive way. Everything else is secondary. To connect with the jury, an expert needs to understand what juries want and know the best ways to communicate with them."

Opinions and Bases for Opinions,"The main reason expert testimony is presented is to offer an expert opinion. Accordingly, experts can anticipate being closely cross-examined on their opinions. They should also expect to be closely questioned on the bases of these opinions because an expert opinion is only as strong as the facts and reasoning upon which it is based. Questions in these areas are best blunted by carefully and honestly forming an opinion that is based on reliable methodology, a thorough investigation, and solid facts."

Stating Opinions and Conclusions in a Defensible Manner:"The main reason an expert is involved in a case is to state her opinion. The principal reason an expert writes a report is to communicate that opinion. The opinion must be communicated effectively and must be expressed in a defensible manner.
