    Answered . Yes. It will depend in part on how long ago the accident happened, and what story you told the doctors during the contemporaneous treatment. If the story shifts over time, credibility issues will arise.

    I represent Employers, but I can recommend Worker Attorneys in So Cal if you ask.
