Interrogatories to ask in motorcycle accident cases.A motorcyclist, struck by an automobile, usually has the benefit of a police report. However, it is crucial to the success of any motorcycle accident case that you also ask the driver a series of questions about why the accident occurred and about their position on your injury and damages.
Ask where the driver was coming from and going at the time of the accident. This may lead to additional defendants if they were working at the time of the accident or doing a favor for someone. Also ask if they saw you or nopticed you before the accident. ask them to describe the accident and also their speed before and during the accident.
Ask for documents of damage and to their car where it struck the motorcycle. It's also important to identify the driver of the car and the owner of the car if it is not known. An interrogatory should also be directed toward photographs and evidence they have collected. For instance, photographs of the motorcycle damage that they may have taken at the scene while you were being transported by ambulance. You should also ask whether the other driver contends that the medical expenses and treatment were not related to the accident or were not necessary. This is a good way for you to identify what are contested issues, and what are not.
A good set of interrogatories in a motorcycle case will narrow the issues in litigation and allow you to focus on those issues that you need to prove at trial.
