Disclosure

'Disclosure' refers to the process of exchanging information and evidence between the parties involved in a legal case, such as a personal injury claim.

In the context of a personal injury claim, the defendant is under a legal duty to disclose certain documents and information that are relevant to the claim. This includes documents that support the defendant's case, as well as any documents that might undermine their case or support the claimants' case.

As a claimant, you also have a duty to disclose any relevant documents and information in your possession that may be relevant to your claim, including any documents that may show that you were partly to blame for the accident.

Disclosure can be a complex process and it's important that you provide all the relevant information and documents to your personal injury solicitor, as it can help to strengthen your case, and also to avoid any potential issues with the court on the grounds of non-disclosure.

Your solicitor will advise you on your duty of disclosure. The solicitor will also manage the process of disclosure on your behalf, including requesting and reviewing the information disclosed by the defendant and providing the court with all the necessary information and evidence to support your claim.
