Can Social Media Harm Your Lawsuit?
In this day and age we are all connected to some form of social media. Updating our status and checking likes on photos is part of our daily routine. However, most of us don’t realize the harm that social media can do when it comes to a lawsuit.
If you are part of any personal injury lawsuit, here are a few things to keep in mind:
Refrain from all social media usage
Set your profiles to “private” so the public will have limited access to your accounts
Do not post details about your accident, injuries or case
Do not post photos/videos about your case
Do not respond to others’ comments about your case
Tell friends and family not to post about your case on their social media platforms
Do not accept friend requests from people you do NOT know
What you post on social media can be misconstrued and used against you in a case.
