Social Media and how it can affect your personal injury case

Social media is a wonderful way to stay in close contact with friends and family and stay in touch with the people who mean the most to you. What you may not know is that posting personal events and photos on social mediums like Facebook, Twitter & Instagram can have a potentially serious impact if you have filed a personal injury case.

Many people are under the misconception that when you mark a post or your settings to “private” that this information is indeed private, it is not. This is information that can be seen by the defense and used against you during the litigation of your case.

For example, if you make a claim in your personal injury case that you can no longer enjoy activities you love like running or exercising and then you post a picture of yourself or friend posts a picture of you running a 3K race, this post can be used during litigation to destroy your credibility and your case.

If you are in an accident or sustain an injury. Do not post pictures of your injuries, property damage, or information about your intentions to file a claim. These types of posts can have devastating consequences to the success of your personal injury claim.
