Honesty is the best policy!

I'm a Massage Therapist not an Attorney.  Though, I often get asked questions about dealing with your Attorney, Insurance Company, and what what to do.  These are all questions I here from those in auto, bicycle, and pedestrian accidents.  So I've done a little reasearch for you and here it is.
Honesty is the best policy.
This is one we don't need to tell you, but there are a few people out there who need to read this. There are cases where the insurance company won't settle and then the jury gives an outrageously low award at trail. An insurance company won't settle a case if they feel it's being exaggerated, and they know if they take a case like that to trial, the jury will punish the injured person for being dishonest. That's why it’s important for a personal injury attorney to document every aspect of the claim and get opinions from unbiased experts and doctors. 95% of cases will settle quickly this way. If a case goes to trial, the best personal injury attorneys are honest with the jury and trust the jury to figure out the truth. Juries reward this kind of honesty with fair and just results. As in all areas of life, honesty is the best policy. It's not only right, it gets the best results.
A top personal injury attorney can improve a settlement amount by two, three, or even more times.
The more serious the injuries are and more complicated your case is, the more this is true. Internal documents from insurance companies reveal that some insurance companies keep a database of personal injury lawyers and adjust their settlement offers based on the reputation of the attorney. The decision you make in hiring an attorney will effect your out come.  The more complicated your case the more you need an attorney.  Look for a personal injury attorneys who you can trust and who has a track record of successful results. 
It is essential to tell your doctors everything about your injuries and complaints and to follow up on all treatment recommendations.
I often get patients that don't tell me all their complaints or tell me all their complaints but didn't tell their doctors.  These patients have the most trouble getting a fair settlement with or with out an attorney.
So tell your doctor everything from the begining, follow his directions and make sure you document the truth about your injuries.  These are the keys to getting a fair settlement.
My research showed that the best personal injury attorneys in the country are caring, down to earth people whose clients are everyday people. They are committed to truth, justice, and accountability. Jurors recognize those qualities in the injured parties and the best personal injury attorneys, that's why they consistently win.
