How Social Media Can Impact Your Personal Injury Case

How Social Media Can Impact Your Personal Injury Case


Whether you are an avid social media user, or you only use it when you have something important to say, it is important to be cautious about posting anything on a social media site after a motor vehicle crash or personal injury.
 
The advantage of social media is that you can let your friends and family know what is going on at any time. However, there are significant disadvantages that could potentially hurt your personal injury case.
 

Ask Yourself These Questions Before You Post

  1. Can my post be misinterpreted?
  2. Would I be okay with the insurance adjuster seeing my post?
  3. How will other people comment on my post?
  4. Am I sharing anything that can be used as evidence in my case?

The insurance adjuster may look at your social media pages to try to prove different things that can dismantle your injury case. For example, a post that is meant to reassure your friends of your well-being may be interpreted by an adjuster as you not being as injured as you claim. Additionally, we also never advise clients to post pictures of the crash scene. Pictures of that sort can be used as evidence and should only be shared with those fighting for you.
 
Being mindful of what you post on social media after a car accident or personal injury is the safest way to avoid this kind of confusion, misunderstanding, and potential damage to your recovery.
