Q Should I tell my lawyer all of my medical history even if I think it will hurt my case?
Absolutely. First, the most fundamental principle in our Court system is to seek truth and justice. How can you seek truth if you start the process with half-truths? Second, your lawyer’s job is to help you. The lawyer can’t help you unless you tell the lawyer the whole truth including the bad stuff. Your lawyer cannot successfully represent you unless he knows what issues exist in your case. Third, your fear that your medical history will hurt your case is probably overblown. If you truly suffered an injury from the car or truck accident at issue, then try to have faith the jury will see that. In the end, win or lose, you will know you were honest, and handled yourself with integrity.
