Information on Lawsuits and Social Media
Many people use social media every day and it can be a great way to stay in touch with many people and connect. Unfortunately, far too many people say things publicly they shouldn’t after experiencing an injury. Any statements you make about your injury on a place like Twitter or Facebook will go public and easily used by an opposing legal team.
It is very important that you not make statements about your injury claim online. Just one statement that might make it look like you had some negligence in causing the accident could be printed and used as evidence against you during litigation. Lawyers and other law firm staff are vigilant now about going through social media posts and finding out all the information about clients that they can.
