Spouses Lie About Traffic Accidents

As a Georgia personal injury lawyer, I could not pass up the opportunity to pass along this information from a recent study conducted by Insure.com.

spouse lyingApparently, the failure to tell a spouse that you were involved in a car accident is much higher than I imagined it would be.  Of the 1,000 married adults surveyed, 24% admitted to keeping a motor vehicle accident a secret from their spouse.  31% of husbands admitted to keeping a car accident a secret compared to only (respectively speaking) 17% of wives.

What I found funny about this article is the fact that the surveyors asked participants whether they suspected that their significant other had the capacity to lie to them about a traffic accident.  Interestingly, while husbands were the ones to lie more often than wives, it was the husbands that more often suspected their wives of lying to them about a traffic accident.  38% of husbands surveyed believed their wives had or were capable of lying to them about a traffic accident.  Can  you say guilty heart!

In the end, I was shocked to see how high the numbers were.  As a husband myself I could not imagine keeping a car accident a secret from my spouse.  Maybe it is because I know my wife would sniff it out in a second.
