Personal Injury Law Glossary
Discovery is the process of collecting and sharing information before a trial. This process can be accomplished through the use of:
- Depositions: pre-trial interviews that are informal and meant to be brought in as additional evidence during a trial;
- Interrogatories: a set of written questions that is formally put to one party in a case by another party and which must be answered within a standard time period (30 days);
- Request for Admission: a device that allows one party to request that another party admit or deny the truth of a statement under oath. If admitted, the statement is considered to be true for all purposes of the current trial.
- Medical Examinations.
- Requests for Production of Documents: a device used to gain access to documents, electronic data, and physical items held by an opposing party in a legal matter. The aim is to gain insight into any relevant evidence that the opposing party holds.
