Its been a year and 2 months. Sjnce my auto suit. I havent even had a deposition yet in my case. The lawfirm im with tells me, my case is in litigation still. And its been transfured to the litagation lawyers. I go to physical therapy 3 days a week. And get spinal pain injections. Why hasn't there been a deposition yet? Im from Michigan.
Depositions tend to be rescheduled frequently depending on the circumstances. Attorneys frequently have to cancel due to multiple conflicts in time and have to reschedule, which may be the case with your deposition having not taken place yet.
Since your case is still in litigation, that means discovery is still going on (both sides are exchanging information, gathering documents, taking depositions, etc.). Your deposition is usually near the end of discovery depending on if there are any new doctors or information that needs to be requested.
Your attorney should inform you of the process and keep you in the loop. Are you getting your medical bills that have been incurred paid? Is there a 1st Party suit or claim?
It is true your deposition may not be taken until late in the game. Hopefully your attorney has actually filed a Complaint as the statute of limitations is 3 years.
Most auto litigation in MI is concluded within 14 months. The best idea is to schedule a meeting with your attorney and have all your questions answered. You could check the court website to be sure the case is pending. You should have at least answered written questions sent to your attorney by the defense attorney and signed medical authorizations.
