“When I seek out professional advice, I don’t want B.S. I want it straight up, with no double talk. I figure you do also. I always use plain English, with no sugarcoating no B.S. lawyer talk, and no double talk - just old fashioned, unsweetened, unvarnished truth - just the way that I would want it.” -Bill Turley
The First Thing You Must Do
The first thing you must do is always tell the truth. No matter what it is you are worried about, you must always be honest and never sugarcoat anything to the judge or you attorney. If you do, then you will lose your case. Trust me, I have seen it time and time again. Do not be that person.

The Defense Base Act insurance company doctor's role
This doctor is not seeing you to get you better. Instead, the doctor is seeing you to help the DBA insurance company defend your case. The questions will be asked in a manner to minimize your injuries and try and discredit you and your case. The DBA insurance company is sending you to this doctor because they believe he will hurt your case. This can come in many different variations.
Never exaggerate or fudge your symptoms
The doctor is looking for you to exaggerate or fake your injuries. You don’t need to do that, and you don’t want to go there. Your case will be lost if you try and pull one something over the doctor. You have to tell the truth.
The doctor has all your prior records
The doctor has all your prior records. The DBA insurance company doctor knows all about your past injuries and claims. And they probably know more about your medical past than you can remember.
The doctor has tricks to catch you faking.
These doctors have all these tests that are specifically designed to catch you faking. Whether it’s moving this way or that way or sensations of pinpricks– you need to know that this is how they will brand you a liar and a fake. Be sure to answer all the questions truthfully. Some folks think they have to convince the doctor that they are really injured so they fudge a tad here and there. Which, in reality, is a case killer. Take your time and be certain of your answer before you respond to the doctor.
The doctor may try and talk to you while doing the movements. The doctor is trying to distract you so that you don’t report pain on movement. Don’t fall for this trick. If you feel pain on movement while the doctor is talking, politely interrupt the doctor and tell the doctor that you are having pain.
