In the wake of a serious auto accident, a lawyer who is skilled in the process known as “discovery” can be a significant advantage. At Clark & Martino, P.A., our lawyers have more than 100 years of combined experience, much of which has been devoted to the art of discovery in auto accident and other personal injury cases. In simple terms, discovery is the initial fact-finding phase of a lawsuit. Through various methods, the parties involved seek out information that is (or potentially can be) relevant to the outcome of the case. If you’ve suffered a serious injury, your insurance company might use the discovery process to examine your medical records, interview your doctor, even subpoena witnesses to the accident. With help from a skilled accident lawyer, you will have the opportunity to do the same, and prevent information that is irrelevant or confidential from falling into the opposing party’s hands.
In Florida, the following is a list of some of the most common discovery techniques:
- Depositions – lay & expert witness testimony
- Interrogatories – written questions
- Requests for production of documents (subpoena duces tecum)
- Requests for admission
- Physical and/or mental examinations
Now that you have learned how important discovery can be, your next step should be to seek additional assistance from an accident lawyer at Clark & Martino, P.A.
