When deposing the plaintiff’s expert in a product liability case, defense counsel must ascertain the basis for and parameters of the expert’s opinions while also eliciting testimony that will support an eventual Daubert/Frye challenge, all without unnecessarily disclosing counsel’s strategy for cross-examination at trial. A well-conducted deposition of the plaintiff’s expert has effectively won many product liability cases for the defense by ultimately resulting in the disqualification of an expert the plaintiff needed to reach a jury. This webinar will provide defense counsel a roadmap for strategically deposing the plaintiff's expert.
