What are the steps in a lawsuit?
If your lawsuit must go to court, you can expect the following:
- Prior to your court date, you will submit a deposition, or sworn statement, in front of a court reporter. The defendant’s attorney will then question you about the reported damages and the specifics regarding the accident.
- After deposition, there is discovery. Discovery is the exchange of documents that are vital to each side’s case.
- Medical examinations and doctor’s orders are usually asked to be submitted during discovery
- Each side then meets to present their case at a hearing
