It's the one thing that everything hinges on.

It's the key to your ICBC injury claim.

What am I talking about ?

CREDIBILITY !!!

Without CREDIBILITY your case is doomed from the start.

Let me tell you a little story that'll help you understand what exactly I'm talking about.

Murray got into a car and claimed to have suffered a neck injury. Murray also claimed to have missed work and lost wages because of his neck injury.

After several months Murray's lawyer filed a lawsuit on his behalf. During the course of the lawsuit, ICBC's lawyer questioned Murray under oath. Murray testified about where he worked, his job duties and how long he'd been off work following his accident. Murray gave evidence that he worked at the Vancouver Sun as a janitor and that he'd missed 6 months of work because of his accident.

Following Murray's testimony ICBC sent an investigator to talk to the person Murray said was his supervisor at the Sun. Unfortunately for Murray no one at the Sun had ever heard of him.

What effect, if any, do this have on Murray's ICBC claim ?

In short, it was blown out of the water. A nuclear strike. A direct hit.

Here's why:

Credibility  i.e. believeability) is the key to any insurance claim/lawsuit. A person's claim in large part depends on how much they're believed.

You can be sure that ICBC will dig around in an effort to find inconsistencies and contradictions in your story.

Why ?

To try and paint you as someone who can't be believed. And if they find a few inconsistencies, just a few contradictions, they'll be well on their way to convincing a judge or jury that pretty much everything you have to say must be looked at under a microscope.
