If your personal injury case doesn’t settle out of court your lawyer will have to litigate your personal injury case in court. When you have a personal injury case in litigation whether it’s in Santa Rosa or San Francisco or Sacramento the process in California is the same. You will have three obligations that need to be done. The first is answering written discovery. Form interrogatories, special interrogatories, and request for production of documents are the typical written documents you have to respond to under oath. Bed very careful and fully disclose everything or it can hurt your case. Next is a deposition and that’s a statement under oath taken by the opposing lawyer. These can be very tricky and you need a seasoned highly skilled lawyer to prepare you for this. If your lawyer is not experienced then you can easily be tricked and ruin your case. Finally the defense is entitled to send you to a doctor of their choosing to do a physical exam. This isn’t your normal physical and this doctor is not there to heal you. They are their to ruin your case and again your attorney must properly prepare you or you can damage or ruin your injury case.
