case, particularly if you have to go to trial.
If you are not in pain, don't get unnecessary medical treatment to drive up your bills. That doesn't mean you shouldn't follow your doctor's orders, but do not exaggerate the extent of your injuries. The truth eventually will come out, and when it does your case might become worthless. If your case goes to trial, your credibility with the jury carries tremendous value. If jurors feel you're not being honest, they won't give you the fair compensation you deserve.
You also have to be straight with your lawyer, who will not handle your case if he thinks you are lying. The attorney needs to know what is really happening with your case in order to represent you fairly and aggressively.
