Discovery and Inspection

Discovery and Inspection is the exchange of information and documents between the plaintiff and the defense. It can include requests for items specified in your Bill of Particulars, such as medical, school, employment and property damage records, photographs, as well as items disclosed at your examination before trial or physical examination.

The defendant may also demand that you allow them access to your private social media, like Facebook or MySpace, hoping you’ve posted photographs or written something that contradicts your court statements. Information you post on social media is not necessarily considered private by the courts, and even if you consider it private, your friends can disclose information and photos about you. The safest bet is to stop using social media and stop posting personal information on social platforms.

During the Discovery and Inspection phase, defendants will also be required to produce their insurance information, names of their witnesses, photographs, statements they may have from you, videotapes, and other pertinent information. It is also at this time that defendants must disclose that they have videotape of your accident, or the scene of your accident, or of you being followed by one of their investigators. The more serious your case and the more disabling your injuries, the more likely it will be that the defendant’s insurance company has had you followed by surveillance cameras for the specific purpose of undermining your claims and catching you on film walking a couple of steps from a wheelchair to a car, for example.

It can be almost guaranteed that, at trial, defendants will not show the hours and days of videotape they have of you confined to your wheelchair. Instead, the defendant and their legal counsel will show the 10 seconds you stood to get into the car. Defense tactics like this are to be expected, which is why our team of New York City personal injury lawyers prepares appropriately during the Discovery and Inspection phase.
