If you have been involved in an accident, you may have decided to hire an attorney to help you pursue compensation for your damages. The attorney should explain the legal process and what you can expect to happen in your case.
One phase of the case is called discovery. Discovery is what happens after a complain is filed and delivered to a defendant. Discovery is a process that attorneys and clients use to understand the facts of the case. Each side of the case will understand the case from their own perspective, but discovery helps all the parties to discover any information that the other side knows. This will help the parties understand the strengths of their cases as well as to prepare for a potential trial.
There are several types of discovery that can be used in a personal injury case. Interrogatories are one type. They are a list of questions that are sent to the other party to answer. Depositions are also common. They are opportunities for each party to question the other or to question witnesses with knowledge of the case. Depositions take place in the presence of a court reporter, and they are done under oath. Requests for production of documents are also common. They are requests for each side to produce documents relevant to the personal injury case.
