After you retain an experienced
personal injury attorney following an accident you were injured in, your attorney should
do more than just the required legal work. They'll also help you through
learning how to manage your life as you sue the negligent party for the
injuries. During this time, you may be tempted to post accident information
and recovery updates on your social media pages.
While social media has become a big part of everyone's life, posting
on social media can bring you even more trouble and legal issues. Your
personal injury lawyer should discourage you from posting, and we'll
explain a few reasons why.
Twisting a Statement Out of Context
The biggest risk you face when you post information about your accident
on social media is having the statements you make being twisted by the
negligent party's legal team because their job is to prove your injuries
aren't as serious as you claim.
When you're stressed and worried after an accident, you might be tempted
to post your frustrations, and you could soon find yourself regretting
those statements, as the legal team for the defendant could take your
statement as you placing blame on yourself for the accident. This threatens
your entire case and could cause you to lose a settlement.
