Deposition and Litigation Handbooks

If a lawsuit is filed against you, OMIC and assigned defense counsel will require your participation and expertise to best represent your interests. In order to help you understand the legal process, OMIC has created the Litigation Handbook for Ophthalmologists (pdf) and the Deposition Handbook for Ophthalmologists (pdf) to provide vital information about medical malpractice litigation.

The Deposition Handbook provides an overview of the deposition process – where your testimony is given under oath prior to trial – to assist you in understanding what takes place at a deposition. It is not designed to take the place of your own personal legal counsel; its function is to provide you with general information about this important part of the litigation process, which increasingly affects the way physicians provide medical system.

 

 

 

 

The Litigation Handbook provides an overview of the litigation process to assist you in understanding the various stages of your case. Principles are necessarily generic since laws vary from state to state and different courts impose their own rules of court. Although this manual can provide you with a generic understanding of legal procedures, it is not a substitute for specific advice from your attorney or OMIC.
