What are interrogatories?Interrogatories are nothing more than questions answered under penalty of perjury. Each party may submit to the other party in California Superior Court, a set of interrogatories that asks for basic information about the lawsuit and issues that are contested. Such information as the identity of witnesses and the names and addresses of those witnesses can be obtained to help lock down liability and damage claims. Seek to identify the documents that would be relevant to your medical expenses, your pain and suffering, your injuries, and your past medical history. The other driver in an auto accident case may take the position that your injuries are not related to the accident. Ask what facts support those contentions.
Interrogatories also help defendants defend their case. They should ask questions about how the accident occurred, what the driver saw, or what the driver did just before the accident, where they were coming from, where they were going. Defendants can also ask about medical docotors and treatment, and the amount of wage loss.
Interrogatories are a great source of identifying what is in dispute and what is not in dispute.
