Discovery is the process before trial where each party can request for information and evidence from the opposing party for use at trial. The discovery process is different in federal and state court, but there are some similarities between the ways parties can gather information in both courts. It is crucial to craft responses to discovery under the supervision of an attorney because the opposing side will do all it can to expose any ambiguities in your answers. At Turner | Modarelli, our personal injury attorneys have extensive experience in responding to discovery for our personal injury clients to ensure the response is clear, concise, and not exposed to any twisted interpretation by opposing counsel.
Interrogatories are a list of questions written by one party for the other party to answer. The responding party can provide answers to the questions or objections to the information sought by the question. There are different limits to the numbers of interrogatories sent to the opposing party depending on which court the lawsuit is filed.
Request for Production of Documents
A request for production of documents is written questions from one party to another seeking certain documents, such as emails, letters, or contracts, which are relevant to the lawsuit. Certain documents are privileged from production, meaning there is a law that prevents the disclosure of the document to the opposing party.
Request for Admission
A request for admission is a written statement proposed to the opposing party asking the answering party to admit the truth of the proposed statement.
A deposition takes place out of court where a person, the witness or party, is asked questions about a legal matter by an attorney, and the answers are recorded by a court reporter. The deposition answers by the witness or party are taken under oath and are admissible in court proceedings.
