    Answered . Your lawyer should explain the process. Receiving the video is no easy feat. However, the usual rule is that when a defendant discloses the video it is not helpful or of no consequence. When it is helpful the video miraculously was not preserved, was inadvertently erased or the computer crashed. Amazing!

    Answered . The other side will take your deposition--your testimony under oath. THe deposition will cover your background, how the incident occurred, the treatment you are receiving and how this injury affects your life. The motive of the defendant in taking your deposition will not be to gather this information but rather to find a way to destroy your case. Your lawyer will prepare you for this deposition. If you want a head start, google how to prepare for a deposition.
    Your attorney will take the deposition of the defendant(s) in an effort to pin down liability.

    Answered . 14 months is not that long of a period to obtain a video of an accident. Videos are not always easy to obtain. You state in your question that you have an attorney and he should be able to answer your basic questions as to the legal process. Remember he is working for you and you should not shy away from asking him questions regarding your claim.

    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . All parties will probably be deposed. Then there will be a pre trial conference which ultimately results in the case being put on the trial calendar.The possibility of settling your claim always exists. Ask your attorney to view the video together. Also ask for his/ her to assess fault( liability) and discuss the value of your injuries and any economic loss. You should discuss whether there will be a need to hire experts-accident reconstruction, medical,,economists etc.
