Will the Jury believe what my lawyer is saying? Aren’t lawyers paid to lie?
It is actually very difficult for you or your lawyer to lie or exaggerate in Court and get away with it. Before Trial begins, almost everything that will be said or shown to Jurors has been recorded and said at an earlier time in front of a court reporter. If you or your lawyer lie about something, the Insurance Defense lawyer and the Court usually knows about it instantly. The Defense will point out the lie to the Jury. Contrary to popular belief, the vast majority of injury clients and lawyers do not lie in Court and would be caught if they did.
