Review:

This book and the education it provides for interpreters has long been awaited by the judicial community of the United States. Whether preparing for a single deposition or courtroom work as a staff interpreter, this book comprehensively equips the interpreter for peak performance. Although the book is geared specifically to the vehicular accident lawsuit in the United States, much of the information contained in the book is invaluable to the judicial interpreter involved in any type of civil lawsuit. Mr. Buenker guides the interpreter through the legal process of the vehicular accident, identifying and explaining those situations, procedures and documents uniquely important to the interpreter's job. The portions of the book that address the objectives of both sides and the resulting potential statements that the interpreter may encounter are particularly valuable. This book is essential reading for any individual who might wish to act as a judicial interpreter a vehicular accident lawsuit, or, for that matter, any civil lawsuit.
