Don’t Get Impeached!
Insurance companies almost always try to use impeachment to avoid paying settlements to an injured person. They find something the person said that might be untrue—anything— and then argue that the person has a bad memory, is lying, or just can’t be trusted. Then they say, if someone is confused or lying about a minor detail, well, they must be lying about their injuries and their pain.
Here are two tips to beat this cheap gimmick:
1) Don’t talk unless you have to. If you are injured, don’t answer questions from another driver or store employees. And never talk to an insurance company, even your own insurance company, by yourself. You can simply say you will have your lawyer contact them. The insurance company can’t twist your words if you don’t give them any to twist.
2) Tell the truth! Sometimes you have to talk. For example, if you are at the doctor, you must give your medical history and tell them what is wrong to get proper treatment. Even if something seems irrelevant, always be completely honest about your medical history and your symptoms. If your doctor asks about prior injuries or past experiences with back pain, be honest! Don’t give the insurance company a free chance to make you look bad by giving an inaccurate medical history.
