Ottawa Ontario Personal Injury Lawyer David Hollingsworth www.ottawainjury.ca Steps of an Ontario Personal Injury Lawsuit : Examination for Discovery
What is an Examination for Discovery in an Ontario personal injury lawsuit? An examination for discovery is a very important step of an Ontario personal injury lawsuit. It allows for questions to be asked under oath. It also allows both sides to share documents that relate to the Ontario personal injury lawsuit. All parties in an Ontario law suit have an obligation to list and give copies of all documents that are relevant to the Ontario personal injury law suit in a sworn affidavit. This is often the time when additional evidence will surface. This is also the stage in an Ontario personal injury lawsuit when the insurance company will be able to ask the accident victim questions. Not to worry, your Ontario personal injury lawyer will be there to ensure that all the questions being asked are fair. Your Ontario personal injury lawyer will also prepare you for an examination for discovery ahead of time so you know what to expect. A court reporter will also be present to record the examination for discovery.
Sometimes in an examination for discovery, a question may be asked and the witness does not know the answer. Often times the Ontario personal injury lawyer and the lawyer for the insurance company will agree that the question can be answered later in writing as an undertaking. Your Ontario personal injury lawyer will help prepare the undertaking and assist you in answering any undertakings.
An examination for discovery often “gets all the cards out on the table”. The examination for discovery gives both sides a clear picture of all the facts in the Ontario personal injury law suit and allows for better communication and better chances of settling the Ontario personal injury lawsuit before it goes to court.
