This week, James Legh expands on the examination for discovery by keying in on the typical main points addressed in the case of a motor vehicle accident.
Here is a short list of questions to expect.
What is your name?
When were you born?
What is your residential status?
What is your education?
What do you (or did you) do for work?
Questions regarding the accident may include:
How did the accident occur?
What happened afterwards?
What did you do?
What did the other person do?
Questions involving the aftermath might include:
How were you beforehand?
How was your health?
Were you hurt in the accident?
What was the extent of your injuries?
How does this impact you today?
How will this impact you in the future?
Keep in Mind
All of these questions are very general and non-specific to each individual case. Discussion with your lawyer will help to prepare you for an examination for discovery by having the answers ready to help your case, while remaining truthful to the facts.
We will discuss the importance of honesty for our answers next week.
