The day of questioning has arrived for Venus Williams ... the tennis star is about to sit for her deposition in the lawsuit stemming from that fatal car crash back in June. 

As we previously reported, the family of Jerome Barson sued Venus -- claiming she's to blame for blocking an intersection and causing Jerome's car to T-bone her in a crash that killed Jerome. 

So, what happens today? Barson's lawyers will undoubtedly grill Venus about her driving decisions on that fateful day and try to paint her as negligent.

Depositions usually only take one day. Then the case could move to trial ... depending on how today goes.

EXCLUSIVE

Blac Chyna's gonna have to jog her memory when she finally sits down and gets grilled about a 2-year-old car crash involving her BMW ... because the victim's lawyer thinks she's lying.

Jon Teller, the attorney for one of the women involved in the 2015 crash, tells TMZ ... BC is scheduled to be deposed this week and the objective's clear -- poke holes in her story that she was home at the time of the crash. Teller's adamant BC was in the car at the time of the crash ... if not behind the wheel.

Teller adds Blac hasn't shown one shred of evidence she was home on November 11. As we reported ... passengers in the SUV said they saw 2 African-American women in mini skirts get out of BC's BMW and jump in a car that had been following them.

Blac's friend, Paige Addison, told cops she was behind the wheel and BC was not in the car. Paige was charged with felony hit-and-run.

Teller also tells us his client's lifestyle has been severely curtailed since the accident ... she's no longer active because of injuries to her back that might require invasive surgery. Teller says she wants hundreds of thousands to cover her medical expenses and the case could cross the million dollar line with pain and suffering and punitives.

We've reached out to BC, so far no word back.

The young man declined a ride in an ambulance to a hospital ... telling them he'd get checked out on his own.
