Here's a story that'll give you a clear picture....

About how what you DON"T say can hurt you when it come to your ICBC claim.

Doctor Conducting Medical Assessment for ICBC ; Mr. Jones, did you have any problems with your right arm before your car accident?

Mr. Jones; No Doc, my right arm was fine. It wasn't giving me any problems.

As it turns out, Mr. Jone's medical records indicated that he'd hurt his right arm while playing tennis three months before his car accident. And  that he'd seen his family doctor on three occasions for this injury .

Mr. Jones' medical records also indicated that his right arm had gone on to improve. And that he hadn't gone to see his family doctor for any problems related to his arm in the month prior to his car accident.

So. Did Mr. Jones tell the truth when answering the question being asked by the doctor conducting the medical assessment on behalf of ICBC?

Technically ..... YES.

But, the answer he gave, while technically correct, was incomplete.

And more to the point it made Mr. Jones look sneaky. Like the type of person who doesn't tell the whole truth.

Interested in talking about how incomplete answers to questions might affect your ICBC injury claim?
