How Social Media Can Ruin Your Personal Injury Claim

Listen as Kissimmee personal injury lawyer, Michelle Incandela discusses what you should not post on social media following an auto accident.

As we know, most people use social media these days. However, you may not have known that insurance companies and their adjusters also monitor social media. The material they uncover can later be used by their attorneys, should they need it. It our recommendation that you post nothing on social media until your claim is resolved.

It is a common assumption that if your page is marked private, no one can view what you post. However, if your claim ever becomes a lawsuit, the defense attorney can subpoena your social media records. Additionally, statements and images you post on social media can be misunderstood or taken out of context, and an issue can arise in which these things can be held against you. Watch the video to learn more.

Testimonials

I was referred to Draper Law by my father in-law after being hit from behind in an auto accident. I didn't realize, at the time, what an important decision I was making by hiring a personal injury attorney to represent me. Charles Draper took the time to explain the process and what I could expect. His professional team was there for me every step of the way through a long, and often complicated, legal experience. I just want to express my sincerest gratitude for all the efforts that were taken by Charlie and his team on my behalf in obtaining a settlement on my case.
