Common Insurance Company Arguments/Excuses #10

Columbus, Ohio. According to David A. Bressman, a personal injury lawyer who limits his practice exclusively those injured in car accidents, insurance companies use many standard arguments when trying to minimize payment to injury victims. Here is #9 in this ongoing series:

"Claiming That You Are Not Really Injured and/or Minimizing Injuries" Part 2

•Shortly after the accident, your physical/health condition returned to “normal” i.e. what
it was prior to the accident

•Your complaints to the doctor were minimal.

•According to medical records, you exaggerate complaints related to the accident.

•According to medical records, your complaints to the doctor were bizarre, exaggerated, and
lengthy. [This is, unfortunately, not unusual in brain injury cases]

•According to medical records, your complaints to one doctor differ from your complaints to other doctor(s).

•You had full range of motion at the medical examination.

•You were observed moving normally and without pain. [wonder if the adjuster will show you all the tapes of you]
