HOW SOCIAL MEDIA AFFECTS YOUR PERSONAL INJURY CLAIM

While your personal injury claim is pending, what you post on social media can affect the overall outcome. Insurance companies always look for ways to pay out as little money as possible by searching for evidence to use against you proving that your injuries just aren’t that severe. Consider these social media tips while your claim is pending.

  • Take a break from your social media accounts. Disable them, suspend them, or just stay quiet while your personal injury claim is pending.
  • Think before you post. Something as simple as a photo of you out to lunch with your friends, taking a hike, or attending a birthday party can be used against you.
  • Keep things to yourself. Don’t post anything related to your case, about your injuries, any problems you are having, or conversations with your lawyers.
  • Be as specific as possible. If you do post anything try to word the description as specific as possible. For example: If you are at the park with your children say that you are sitting and watching them play.

Before you post, think about the consequences. If you or anyone you know has been the victim of an accident, contact The Brothers in Law at (757) 599-6050.
