Examination Before Trial (EBT)
When an Examination Before Trial (EBT) is ordered by the Court, you must
attend. Failing to do so can result in delays, even dismissal of your case.
Your Examination Before Trial is an oral examination by the attorney for
the party you are suing. It is usually conducted out of Court, but under
oath and taken down by a court reporter.
The attorney for the defense will ask you about your accident and your
injuries. One of our New York City personal injury lawyers can prepare
you and guide you through the examination. Men should wear a tie and jacket,
women should wear a skirt or dress.
If you need an interpreter, you must let us know as soon as possible so
we can arrange one for you. You will need to confirm the arrangements
of this examination one day in advance with our office so we can be sure
to advise you of any changes in scheduling.
Unfortunately, many times defendants and their lawyers are unprepared to
go ahead, and these examinations before trial must be rescheduled.
To ensure this does not happen to you, call Mirman, Markovits & Landau,
