LNP 117 Best Practices When an Attorney Takes an Expert Witness Deposition

If you listened to Lorraine Doonan speak in LNP 116, you know she has had some trying testifying experiences as have I. I put this podcast together to focus on what you can expect in an expert witness deposition.

Listen in as Pat Iyer chats about these points:

  • The purposes of an expert witness deposition
  • Showing the expert’s bias or otherwise undermining the expert’s credibility
  • Gaining concessions from the expert to help prove the attorney’s points
  • Obtaining as much information as possible regarding the expert’s opinions and the basis for them
  • Attempting to get the expert to support even a small part of the attorney’s case
  • Discovering the weaknesses in the attorneys’ own client’s case
  • Judging the demeanor of the expert

This is the story of a beautiful 18-year-old girl who was receiving pain medication through her patient controlled analgesia pump. This vibrant young lady’s death less than 24 hours after her PCA pump started is one of the most compelling patient safety stories I’ve heard. I had an opportunity to interview Amanda’s parents, Cindy and Brian Abbiehl and Michael Wong, an attorney who started a patient safety organization for healthcare providers and patients. Michael and I became involved in presenting podcasts about opioid safety. I’d love for you to hear Amanda’s story.
