What are interrogatories?

Interrogatories are questions propounded from the opposing party in an attempt to get a better picture of the claims and counterclaims presented by both parties, including but not limited to injuries sustained, permanency, wage loss, and property damage. Interrogatories also give counsel a more detailed description of when, where and how the accident happened and the circumstances surrounding the accident. Similar questions are propounded to the defendant by your lawyer as well. The “discovery responses” as they are called, give your attorney some insight into the defenses alleged by the opposing party and allow him to properly prepare your case for potential depositions or trial.
