Rear end accident
I'm plaintiff in pro per because it's not a large enough case in terms of judgment dollars for an attorney to take it. Minimal personal injuries. Mostly damage to my car. It's totalled. I have witnesses who have signed statements. First of all can the defense's attorney depose my witnesses or are they allowed to submit written statements? Also, can defense subpoena my medical records for my entire life and my DMV records for my entire life, all court records for my entire life, workers comp claims, etc. It seems irrelevant to the case and an invasion of my privacy. If so, can i subpoena the same from defendant?
So you want us to teach you how to practice law? Good luck.
Beware of Attorneys on here with perfect reviews. No one is perfect and if it looks too good to be true, it most likely is. No attorney/client relationship is or shall be created by this response on Avvo to non-clients of The Law Offices of Norman Gregory Fernandez.
Yes they are entitled to the pose your witnesses and conduct discovery in the manner that they choose. You can file a motion for a protective order with the court if you feel the document subpoenas go too far.
Better yet go hire an attorney.
My responses on this website DO NOT constitute a consultation, nor do they establish an attorney-client relationship. Only a written retention agreement signed by client and myself will establish an attorney-client relationship. Please DO NOT message or phone me with further questions or comments as the discussions would be outside this forum and would not be visible to the public (the only exception to this being for serious prospective clients). If you have additional follow up questions or additional facts to add, re-draft them into a new question and repost it.
You seem to have more that a car crash case if the other side wants to take depositions which are expensive but are allowed....
