Attorneys for both parties are trying to get information they can use at trial to their advantage. They want information that makes the other side look bad or proves their version of the facts is the right one.
Akron, OH (PRWEB) June 28, 2013
The two new videos just release by Akron personal injury lawyer, David Chester, are part of his ongoing series which is focusing on the elements of an Ohio personal injury lawsuit.
Just uploaded to Chester Law Group’s video website and also uploaded to their official education YouTube channel were the videos entitled “What is an Interrogatory in a Personal Injury Lawsuit” and “What is a Deposition in an Ohio Personal Injury Lawsuit”.
In the video “What is an Interrogatory?” Attorney Chester explains that an interrogatory is part of the discovery process in a personal injury lawsuit. These interrogatories, or written questions, are exchanged between the parties for each to answer. These questions may be basic things such as where the plaintiff lives, was the plaintiff hurt, has the injured party had similar injuries before, etc.? If a lawsuit is a vehicle accident case questions to the defendant may be if they were drinking, were they taking medication which could have impaired their driving, etc.?
The video “What is a Deposition?”, explains that a deposition is a process where parties to a lawsuit, in court, ask each other oral questions under oath and a court reporter is there to type up what is said. Attorney Chester also explains that there are situations where the deposition is actually videotaped. The video outlines the normal questions asked in a deposition but Attorney Chester points out that the type of questions in a deposition depends on the type of personal injury case.
In both videos on interrogatories and depositions, Attorney Chester points out that council for both parties can object to any questions they feel are improper and if there is a real issue the court gets involved on the discovery issue.
In a recent interview Attorney Chester was discussing both interrogatories and depositions and he was quoted as saying “Attorneys for both parties are trying to get information they can use at trial to their advantage. They want information that makes the other side look bad or proves their version of the facts is the right one.”
He notes that if the deposition turns nasty the attorney for one of the parties in the lawsuit may file what is called a motion for a protective order.
David’s last two videos in this series on Ohio personal injury lawsuits discusses what is a motion and what is a motion for a protective order.
