DISCOVERY IN A WORKERS' COMPENSATION CASE

Discovery is the initial part of the legal process in an Arizona workers' compensation case. Initially, a request for hearing will be filed by either the injured worker or the insurance carrier. Once that happens, deadlines will go into effect and the parties will serve interrogatories on one another.

Interrogatories are questions that one party uses to get more information about the other party's case. There is a specific limit on the number of questions that can be asked. This part of the process is very complex and very intimidating to an unpresented Arizona injured worker. The reason is the injured worker will typically receive a large envelope filled with interrogatories, plus a notice of deposition, plus medical releases to sign. The injured worker will typically begin panicking once this happens (this is a great time to contact Fendon Law Firm!).

A deposition is an opportunity for typically the lawyer who represents the insurance company to ask the injured worker a series of questions. The usual deposition lasts approximately 45 minutes to one hour. It is crucial that the Arizona injured worker be prepared for the deposition as any mistakes in what is said could permanently affect his or her case.

We highly recommend that if you are not represented for the discovery process you immediately seek the wisdom of an upper tier workers' compensation law firm like Fendon Law Firm.
