It doesn’t matter how good your case is, if you lie to your lawyer or the insurance company about past injuries and accidents, the jury is going to make sure you lose.
Remember, the insurance companies have access to vast databases about your life, including past lawsuits, claims, and injuries. Also, with the popularity of social media sites like Facebook and Twitter, there is even more information out there about you that they can use.
As always, honesty is the best policy. Tell your lawyer all about past claims and injuries, so that he or she can deal with the issues. The worst thing is for your lawyer to be the last one to know!
