Don’t Let Social Media Destroy Your Injury Claim

Don’t Let Social Media Destroy Your Injury Claim

by Staff Blogger | August 16th, 2016

Social media has become a part of all of our lives. Whether you’re an individual or a business, chances are you have at least one social media presence, if not multiple. Social media has given us a new way to communicate with our friends, family, and the world in general. But where it gives us new ways to stay connected, it can also do serious harm to your injury claim. In fact, if you’re not careful, social media can end your injury claim before it even starts.

Injury claims, for the most part, are all about facts. You were in a car accident, sustained injuries, and therefore deserve compensation. As your attorneys, we will work hard to keep the facts center stage throughout the claims process. The insurance company on the other hand will be looking for ways to cast doubt on those facts, and social media can give them all the ammunition they need to do so. A simple status update on your Facebook that states you’re feeling good today can be manipulated into an argument that you’re not really as injured as your claim. Yes, it’s slimy, but it does happen.

That’s why it’s important to limit your social media engagement throughout the injury claim process, because the insurance company may be monitoring your feeds. But that’s just one of the potential pitfalls accident victims need to watch out for. Find out the rest at a free consultation with one of our Alabama car accident attorneys. The call and the advice are absolutely free. All you have to do is give us a call.
