Discovery – An Important Part Of Every Personal Injury Claim

The manner in which accident lawyers New York City propound and answer discovery in a personal injury claim can have a major impact on the outcome of a personal injury claim. As such, it is important for both the lawyer and the plaintiff to be prepared for the long discovery process once they file their claim.

Propounding Discovery

Before your lawyer can propound discovery on the opposing party, he will need to first “propound” discovery on you. The documents that your lawyer will ask you to complete are similar to the ones that the defense will later propound on you. Therefore, completing these forms will prepare you to answer defense discovery and provide your accident lawyers New York City with all the necessary facts they needs to propound discovery on the opposing party.

Answering Discovery Propounded by the Defense

How you answer discovery requests propounded by the defense is very important to your personal injury claim. One of the major concerns for most plaintiffs is whether they should reveal damaging information. Despite what most plaintiffs may think, insurance companies will ultimately discover every detail of your past, including the most damaging information that you may not have revealed to your own attorney. This is precisely what the discovery process is for. Both sides will use discovery as a tool to get as much damaging information from the other side in the hopes that they will have the upper hand during both settlement talks and at trial.

As such, it is important to disclose every detail to your accident lawyers New York City, even the information you may think is not relevant to your case. Your lawyer will then look at the facts surrounding your case and determine what information should be revealed to the defense during the discovery process.
