Have you been injured as a result of someone else’s negligence? If so, it may seem as if your world has suddenly turned upside down. Before the injury, you were working, enjoying life, and feeling great. Now you’re in pain, unable to work, and worried about how you’ll pay that mounting stack of medical bills while also still providing for your family.
If this situation sounds familiar, you may have filed an insurance claim, hoping to recover the compensation you desperately needed to move forward with your life, only to be told by the insurer that your claim was "exaggerated." What does that mean? And what rights do you have? These are important questions to ask, and at Morgan and Morgan, we’re here to help you understand the answers.
Who Files a False Claim?
First, it’s important to understand that, unfortunately, there are dishonest people in the world. Sometimes, people do file claims that are either entirely false or that are greatly exaggerated. This can happen when:
- Some people injure themselves and falsely blame that injury on another person.
- Some people pretend their injuries are worse than they actually are;
- Some people stage accidents entirely, even when they didn’t actually occur;
- Some people inflate their medical bills;
- Some people pretend they can’t work when they actually can;
- And the list goes on.
Unfortunately, some people do these things. By doing so, they not only put themselves in a place where they may face legal consequences, but they also create unnecessary difficulty for those filing legitimate claims for legitimate injuries.
What Effect Can This Have on My Claim?
Sometimes, an insurance company may review your claim and tell you it was exaggerated—and many times, this simply isn’t the case at all. Understandably, if you are an honest person who was truly injured, you need and deserve compensation for those injuries. To be told that your claim is exaggerated can be extremely frustrating. Instead of getting frustrated, though, you should seek help.

We also understand insurance companies—how they operate, and the best strategies to use on your behalf in response. We’re here to help.
