How Social Media Affects An Ongoing Injury Case

There are many factors that affect personal injury cases, including the severity of the injury, the negligence of the other party, and statements made by any of the parties. To learn more about personal injury law click here.

What is social media? According to some, it's the new "word of mouth". I must caution those of you involved in accidents not to use social media to report any details or information. After all, someone is always watching what you post.

What about the woman who was involved in a serious accident, but posted on Facebook or Twitter every time she went some place for the weekend or what she did? She even posted pictures of herself looking like she was having a good time.

The attorneys in the case didn't believe she was in such pain and neither did the jury. Social media can play a major role in getting less compensation than you may deserve. Today, attorneys and investigators are using these websites to determine whether there is fraud or exaggeration in their case against you.

If you are a victim in an accident, it is best to avoid social media to discuss your life - watch what you post, if you must post at all. Personal injuries are the most devastating and upsetting situations that can happen to our lives; they greatly affect relationships, emotions and hopes.

If you are injured in an accident as a result of another person's negligent actions, contact the personal injury attorneys at Peach & Weathers. They will help you keep order in you're case and protect your rights from others trying keep you from compensation.
