What Gives Me the RIGHT to Ask Doctor You Sued Hypothetical Questions at His Deposition?
NY Medical Malpractice & Personal Injury Lawyer Gerry Oginski Explains
Doctor, I want you to assume the following facts to be true…
On January 1, my client, Mrs. Jones saw you for the first time.
At that visit, she complained of a breast lump in her right breast.
Would you agree that in that circumstance, good practice requires that you obtain a detailed, thorough history about this breast lump?
I want you to further assume that the patient told you that this breast lump grew in size over the prior month.
You’d agree that would be an important fact you’d want to know about?
I want you to further assume that not only did this breast lump grow in size over the prior month, but it was discharging liquid and had an orange peel look and feel.
You’d agree that this would be important for you to know?
Can we agree that in that circumstance, after taking a detailed history from the patient, good medical practice required you to perform a physical examination? An examination that included a thorough breast examination? A breast exam that included the patient sitting up and also lying down.
Watch the video to find out why, in New York, it is critically important that I ask the doctor whom you sued, hypothetical questions during his pretrial deposition, which is also known as an examination before trial.
