# 1. Motor Vehicle Accident - Driver Deposition Checklist. 

"...[This] LTF form is better than I expected. Comprehensive."
        --- Charlie Sizemore,
            Tennessee attorney.

This is a pattern deposition question outline for both plaintiff and defense attorneys, and also their legal assistants, in motor vehicle accident cases.  This is the basic, must-have, form in any car or truck negligence case- a checklist of the questions to ask in a deposition of the adverse driver, or at trial.

Generally this form will also be suitable as the basis for deposing the passenger in an automobile, or a witness to the accident. (The questions to the driver regarding what the driver did, can be switched to asking what the passenger or witness say the driver do.)

Because it is useful in examining the adverse driver, it will also be a handy checklist to use in witness preparation, preparing your own client or witness to testify.  (After all, if these are things a good lawyer will ask the adverse driver, shouldn't your client be prepared to deal with these questions?)  MVA Driver Deposition Checklist

# 2.  Motor Vehicle Police Officer Checklist: Interview - Deposition - Trial Testimony. In every bodily injury or death that involves an auto, truck, motorcycle, or highway pedestrian accident there is a police officer involved.  Our deposition checklist is not only also a pattern interview checklist -- it is also a trial testimony checklist.

# 3. Request to Bring Items to the MVA Driver or Witness Deposition. Whether you represent plaintiff or defendant, when you take the deposition of the adverse driver, or of a passenger, you should consider including a demand that certain items be brought to the motor vehicle accident deposition by the adverse party. Make this little $4.50 form a standard routine.  It's an example of why we say that our forms are like having a mentor in a box. Click to go to the Request to Bring Items to the Deposition.
