Case Killer: Exaggerating Your Injuries

There are many ways that a personal injury claimant can do things to harm their case. One of the worst things you can do is exaggerate your injuries. We don't see this very often, because most people are honest folks who go to the doctor, report their injuries and try to get better.
 

But every now and then, we see it where someone thinks they can help their case by exaggerating their injuries. Insurance companies, juries and especially doctors are very keen and they can sense when you are exaggerating your injuries - it will be noticed. Don't be tempted to exaggerate your injuries; it's actually a case killer. You can end up recovering no money and stuck with all these medical bills. Don't be tempted to exaggerate your injuries, just stay honest: it's the best way to go.
