BREAKING NEWS: Kevin Callahan Named Among Region’s Top 100 "Super Lawyers"

The truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. That’s what you have to tell if you testify in a court of law. You also have to be entirely honest if you pursue a personal injury claim after a traffic accident in southern California. Even if you have no moral, ethical, or spiritual convictions about truth-telling, one exceedingly good reason remains for telling the truth if you file a personal injury claim. If you’re lying, you’ll get caught. Insurance companies not only investigate accidents and question witnesses, but they can hire detectives to follow you, and they can search through your Facebook timeline and your other online activity. If you’ve been injured in a traffic accident by the negligence of another motorist, and if you can prove that you’re telling the truth, you can be reimbursed for your medical treatment and your other injury-related expenses, but you must have the help of an experienced Pasadena personal injury attorney.

Lying about a personal injury – making up a wound or exaggerating the severity of a trivial injury – is fraud. If a judge determines that there’s any falsehood in your personal injury claim, you could be ordered to pay all of the insurance company’s legal expenses, and you could be prosecuted for criminal fraud. If your claim is legitimate, you have nothing to fear, and you can concentrate on recovering from your damage while an experienced Pasadena personal injury attorney handles your legal concerns and fights for your rights.

If you’ve been injured in the Pasadena area or the greater Los Angeles area because another person was being a negligent driver, tell the truth frankly and candidly. Whatever you say will be analyzed and dissected by all parties involved, so be as honest and accurate as you can. Exaggeration can hurt you. Avoid it and let the truth speak for itself. If you have been in a traffic accident and injured because of someone else’s negligence in southern California, discuss your case as quickly as possible with an experienced Pasadena personal injury attorney.
