A: I am sorry to hear about your loss.

So, 50 interrogatories can be high or low based on the case and what is being asked and why. Have one case where over 60 medical subpoenas are going out based on things that happened and multi years of multiple doctors. The interrogatories varied from person to person involved, but the high ran close to 200 and the low was in the 60's for the people being asked for information. Have had other cases where the interrogatories were in the low 20's

A: The answer is no it is not unheard of to have 50 interrogatories, it all depends on the facts of the case and the questions that need to be asked.
