How Facebook Can Hurt Your Personal Injury Lawsuit

Facebook, Twitter and similar social networking websites make it easy to communicate with family, friends, and strangers. With each passing year, we become more and more reliant on social networking sites to keep our loved ones (and others) up to date on what is going in our lives.

Since we share everything from what how well our morning workout went to what we ate for dinner, it seems natural that we would share both news of our accident and news of our everyday activities following the accident. Our advice is simple – don’t do it.

Insurance companies want to minimize your payments. According to an article by nealefhima.com, to do that, they will argue that your injuries are not as extensive as you claim them to be. They may use, or distort, your status update and tweets to prove that your injuries are not as significant as they really are.

Thus, we encourage you to be extra vigilant about how you use social media and to talk to a Pennsylvania personal injury lawyer if you have any questions about your recovery.
