Can I use the defendants false claims on a set of answers to my interrogatories to benefit my case?

I am involved in a lawsuit. It is in the discovery phase and I have sent off my first set of written interrogatories to the defendant. The defendant answered the interrogatories and objected to all of them but did not read them carefully which caused them to make false claims on a few of the interrogatories.

Answers to interrogatories may be used against the answering party.  However, the objections are not generally admissible.

The attorney providing the answer was not serving as the attorney for the person submitting the question or in any attorney-client relationship with such person. Laws may vary from state to state, and sometimes change. Tiny variations in the facts, or a fact not set forth in a question, often can change a legal outcome or an attorney's conclusion. Although AttorneyPages.com has verified the attorney was admitted to practice law in at least one jurisdiction, he or she may not be authorized to practice law in the jurisdiction referred to in the question, nor is he or she necessarily experienced in the area of the law involved. Unlike the information in the Answer(s) above, upon which you should NOT rely, for personal advice you can rely upon we suggest you retain an attorney to represent you.
