When the going gets tough in your South Dakota accident claim, should you start “bending the truth” to get the care and compensation you need?

Resist the temptation. You can create serious problems for yourself and wreck your potential injury claim if you resort to lies to win your claim:

  • Don’t lie to the insurance adjuster. While you should be careful what you say to the insurance adjuster, you should never choose to lie about your injuries or what happened. If you are unsure how to work the insurance adjuster, don’t hesitate to seek your attorney’s guidance.
  • Don’t lie to your doctor. Any lies you tell your doctor—whether you exaggerate symptoms or understate how much pain you’re in—can interfere with your getting appropriate care. And, honestly, the likelihood is that your medical providers probably know that you’re exaggerating your injuries.
  • Don’t lie to your attorney. Your attorney can’t help you if you aren’t telling the truth about your accident claim and injuries. In many cases, being honest about the details can help you and your attorney prepare for and avoid potential problems.

If You Have Been Legitimately Injured by a Negligent South Dakota Driver, You Shouldn’t Have to Lie to Resolve Your Claim

Although it may be difficult to get a fair settlement offer from the insurance company, you should never have to lie or exaggerate to get the outcome you need from a car accident claim. If you are running into problems negotiating with the insurance company, reach out to an experienced personal injury team that can help you beat problems the right way.
