Types of Discovery in a Personal Injury Case

After a car accident, insurance companies are quick to offer victims lowball settlements for their injuries. But when those offers don’t come close to covering your injury-related expenses, we’re prepared to help you file a lawsuit.

If you choose us to handle your injury claim, you may hear about discovery—a process that requires both sides to share information, facts, and evidence related to a case with each other before the case settles or goes to trial. At Parrish DeVaughn Injury Lawyers, we do everything we can to prepare our clients for all four phases of discovery, which include:

  1. Interrogatories—Both parties ask the other party questions about the accident. This step is designed to help clarify basic facts about the accident and information about witnesses, injuries, and medical treatment that victims received.
  2. Request for Production of Documents—Evidence in personal injury claims can be extensive and often includes things like police reports, medical records, photographs of injuries and the accident scene, surveillance footage, and more. Both sides are required to share any documents in their possession.
  3. Request for admission—Although most personal injury cases settle out of court, they sometimes go to trial. This step gives both sides a chance to establish facts about the case before the trial begins. Once facts are established during this step, they can’t be disputed.
  4. Depositions—Similar to interrogatories, depositions involve lines of questioning about the facts of the accident. However, depositions are recorded and participants are under oath. They may later be used during trial via video or transcript.

The discovery process gives us access to all relevant information so that we can build a strong case on your behalf. You don’t have to settle for the insurance company’s initial offer. Let us help you determine what your case is really worth so that you can get the compensation you deserve.
