Why it is Important to Be Honest With Your Florida Personal Injury Attorney

If you have sustained a Florida personal injury in a car accident, Florida pedestrian accident, bicycle accident, or any other accident, you will likely want to speak to a Florida personal injury attorney about your injuries. A qualified personal injury attorney can help investigate your accident, can help offer legal insights about your case, and can help advise you of your rights, so that you can make an informed decision about your case. If you decide to pursue a lawsuit, a good Florida personal injury attorney can represent you and can help ensure that you get the best possible settlement for your claim in order to cover lost income, medical bills, and other costs associated with your accident.

Many victims, when they contact a Florida personal injury attorney, feel a lot of pressure to make their case seem as strong as possible. In many cases, they don’t wish to admit any possible fault or any way that they may have caused an accident. In some cases, they assume that an attorney will be unwilling to work with someone who is not obviously injured. For this reason, some people feel pressure to be dishonest with their personal injury attorney.

This can be an expensive mistake. It is vital to be completely honest with a personal injury attorney, even if you feel doing so may affect your case. A good personal injury attorney will be hiring investigators as well as other experts to look into your accident, as well, so any dishonesty on your part will be quickly discovered. You will likely feel more embarrassed when you dishonesty is discovered than if you were simply honest right from the beginning.

As well, your dishonesty may not even be necessary. For example, details about your medical conditions, activities, financial situation and other details you worry about disclosing may simply not matter to your case. The role of your Florida personal injury attorney is to help you as much as possible, and this is only possible if you are completely honest with your attorney.

Further, being dishonest or lying to your personal injury attorney can affect your relationship with your attorney as well as your communication with your attorney. If you’re dishonest, your injury attorney has no way of knowing what you are really thinking and what is really going on. Just like anyone else, an attorney will be wary about any dishonesty and may decide to terminate your relationship, leaving you with no legal representation at a time when you really need a good attorney.
