Car accident - perjury

A relative was a driver in a car accident that hurt me. Other people were injured even more badly. The police report did not mention my injuries, but only theirs. I did go to a doctor with pain the next day, and have long standing issues since then, all documented. The defendant is now denying any injuries were caused to me and is trying to get my case dismissed. I have emails from the defendant apologizing for the injury before the lawsuit was filed. Does this constitute perjury?

Hopefully, you are being represented by an attorney. If you are, direct these questions to them. If you aren't, you should retain an attorney to advocate on your behalf regarding your injuries and potential for recovering the cost of present and future medical expenses and pain and suffering related to the car accident.

Are you being represented by an attorney in the lawsuit? The emails and perjury aren't really the issue, nor the fact that the police report doesn't mention your injuries - it happens all the time. It's best that you consult and retain a local personal injury attorney because the other driver's insurance company is probably providing him with one - meaning, you're fighting against a defense attorney who does this all the time.Your attorney is going to help you establish that your injuries were caused by the other driver from this accident based on your medical history and treatment.

At fault drivers lie. Insurance companies prefer not paying out on claims. Such issues are handled every day by experienced personal injury attorneys. One proves what really happened in court by presenting facts through testimony of witnesses, documents, photographs, expert opinion, etc. Anyone with actual physical injury from a car accident where that person was not at fault should get medical attention first and legal representation second.

The fact of the matter is that you need to hire an attorney to represent you and advocate on your behalf, especially if you have medical bills. I have over 20 years experience representing clients across California in auto accident cases. I have fought to get my clients their compensation for their injuries. I hope that I can be of service in your case.
