Posted on January 23, 2012It’s not uncommon for the insurance companies or the defense to commission private detectives to investigate those who file Kentucky car accident claims. If you think you may be under surveillance, you should discuss your concerns with a Louisville personal injury attorney.
In most cases, car accident victims tell the truth about their injuries. However, investigators sometimes “catch” people performing an activity that wasn’t approved by their doctor or that wasn’t mentioned in their deposition.
For example, let’s say you were caught walking down Fort Knox Trail when your injuries warrant a rest from physical activity. Even when there are legitimate reasons for your activity (e.g., you were on pain medication, you decided to try a little walk to see if you could manage it, etc.), these types of innocent mistakes could spell disaster for you case.
If you have to file a Kentucky car accident claim, to be on the safe side, always assume you’re under surveillance. The best tactic to use in these circumstances is plain and simple honesty. Just try to:
- go about your affairs;
- strictly following your doctor’s orders; and
- neither over- nor under-exaggerate your condition.
