Interrogatories are a set of written questions presented to an opponent for them to answer, in writing, under oath. A sample set of interrogatories in an automobile accident is appended below this blog for those of you curious to see the types of questions Chaikin, Sherman, Cammarata & Siegel would likely present to an opponent in an automobile accident case. A sample of interrogatories sent by the opponent to Chaikin, Sherman, Cammarata & Siegel to be answered by our client is attached below. Interrogatories sent with a lawsuit generally require a party to provide an answer within 45 days. Interrogatories or other discovery sent after a lawsuit has been served usually permit the party only 30 days to file its responses. Interrogatories usually ask the parties questions that reveal their identity, their employment, housing and driving history, the injuries they have sustained, a history of their medical treatment and requests for a list of medical bills.
