Over the course of a personal injury lawsuit, there are several ways that mistakes can derail your compensation efforts. One of the most important mistakes you should avoid, however, is being dishonest with your doctor.
After an injury, you’ll likely be facing several doctor’s appointments, and it’s very important that you give your doctor full disclosure of both your current injuries and any pre-existing conditions that could have caused or affected your injuries.
Even if they don’t seem important, they can affect your case, and being dishonest never looks good.
It’s also important to attend each follow-up appointment that your doctor recommends. Failing to do so can say to an insurance adjuster that you are exaggerating or being dishonest about the true nature of your injuries. This can hinder your compensation.
