Honesty Works in a Personal Injury Claim

Posted on:3/18/2013
It is essential that you be honest with your personal injury and with any healthcare provider treating you for your injuries from the car accident.


With respect to your personal injury attorney, there is an attorney-client privilege which means that the attorney can never reveal what you say to him about your case. It is critical that you be totally honest with your personal injury attorney so that they know everything that they need to properly represent you.

 

Hiding anything from your personal injury attorney could jeopardize your case. Similarly, you need to be very honest and accurate with your doctors. Remember that your doctors will attempt to write down everything that you say when you are seeking treatment. So, you need to make sure to give them an accurate history of the cause of the injury. You should not exaggerate or understate your symptoms.

 

One of the main defenses in personal injury cases is if the insurance company can make it seem that the person hurt is faking or malingering for the gain of getting money from the insurance company. Insurance companies have done a great job in recent years of pretending that there is a lot of insurance fraud.

 

Insurance companies spend millions of dollars on advertising campaigns to convince the public that anyone making a claim out of an automobile wreck is probably a liar. What you can do to protect yourself is make sure that you are being exactly honest about what hurts you, how long it has hurt you, and where you believe it came from. To effectively deal with the insurance company, your personal injury attorney will require the correct information from you.
