Can I Get Details of How a Bill Was Calculated?
The answer will depend on the terms for billing of the contract involved. If you dispute the bill, there is a fact-finding process when a complaint is filed that allows a party to request the other party to turn over information, such as the supporting documention for a bill for services. A request for documents in called a regquest for production. Written questions may also be served, called interrogatories, which require the party served to supply written answeres with in a stated time.
In the discovery process of a lawsuit, a party may request information through interrogatories or a request for production as long as it is reasonably calculated to lead to the discovery of admissible evidence. A party served with a discovery request may object to the request and ask the court for a protective order to limit or deny the request if it is irrelevant, overbroad, unduly burdensome, or intended for purposes of delay, expense, or harassment. If a party unjustifiably fails to respond timely to a discovery request, the requesting party may ask the court to compel the party to answer and pay costs and sanctions.
