What to Expect During the Discovery Stage of a Kentucky Medical Malpractice Wrongful Death Case

You spend every day missing your loved one. He was taken from you too soon and not by natural causes, but rather by the negligence of a Kentucky doctor. There is nothing that is going to make this “right” or that can undo the harm that has been done to your loved one and to your family. However, you are considering your legal options so that your family doesn’t suffer financially as you grieve and adjust to the new life forced upon you by a Kentucky medical malpractice wrongful death of a loved one.

 

Know What to Expect in Discovery Before Filing a Lawsuit

 

Once your complaint has been filed, and an answer has been provided by the defendant then your cause may move to the discovery stage. It is in this stage of litigation where evidence is gathered through very specific means. You may have seen discovery on TV or in the movies, or you may have participated in discovery in another type of lawsuit. While requests for production of documents don’t scare you, you may be concerned about written interrogatories and oral depositions.

  • We are always sympathetic to your loss
  • You will never be alone or unprepared
  • Getting through discovery may be worth it in the end
