Do I Have to Disclose my Criminal Convictions If I Make a Personal Injury Claim?

Chris Finney, Trial Attorney

The short answer is yes. You have to disclose your criminal convictions to your personal injury attorney; it’s required by law. 

You will need to disclose your criminal convictions in what is called interrogatory responses. It’s a standard request in the state of Missouri from the defense side to please list anything you plead guilty to.  

So the simple answer is yes, there are some circumstances where there is an exception to the rule, but the overarching general theme is yes, you must disclose them.
