Lying To Your Attorney
You are safe to assume that the insurance company knows more about you than you think. The insurance companies share information with each other through databases about your past accidents and the injuries from those accidents.
For this reason, it is important that you disclose this information to your attorney so that your attorney can properly deal with these issues in your case. The worst thing that can happen is that you are not completely honest with your attorney and your attorney learns about these things from the insurance adjuster while trying to negotiate a settlement for you. Without knowing this information, your lawyer cannot help you.
Do Not Exaggerate Your Injuries After A Car Accident
It is also important not to fake or even exaggerate your injuries. It is very possible that the insurance company has hired an investigator to video record you. If you are caught participating in physical activity which you claim you are unable to do, this is all but certain to ruin your case.
