As an Atlanta personal injury attorney, I have seen and heard some crazy things. Included in them are some of my favorite personal injury lies told by clients. Here are some of my favorites.1. One of the top lies is about who actually caused the accident. Most accidents do not have witnesses. Let me rephrase that, most accidents do not have witnesses who stay around and give their name and contact information. With no one around, clients will play the credibility card. It goes something like, “that little kid” or “in some beat up car.” The purpose is to establish a sense of who should have caused the accident rather than who actually did cause the wreck.2. Another top lie that personal injury clients tell is about their previous injuries. I hear everyday someone say that they have never been in an accident. I hear them because I asked them directly. However, memories fail us all.3. Another favorite lie that Atlanta personal injury clients tell is about how hurt they really are. If you know anything about soft tissue injuries such as whiplash, back strains, neck sprains, and the like, they are capable of being faked. These injuries are real, but they do not show up on x-rays. The doctor is not able to detect when a client is lying. In these types of cases, it is uncommon, but possible for a client to be “in the know” a talk up their pain level. They can tell the doctor on follow up visits that things are not getting better. This results in more medical bills and a higher settlement amount.4. Want a lie about their job? Many clients will attempt to claim that they have side jobs. They may show up with a handwritten note from someone saying that they paid client $500 a week to clean the house. This lie does not go very far and will not work.5. The final lie I hear is about their criminal past. Jurors do not like to give money to criminals and will not be sympathetic. The worst variation of this lie is when I find out that they have been arrested selling the medication they received in their personal injury case.
