Social Media and You
For all of our clients or any individuals who are contemplating a Workers’ Compensation injury claim/lawsuit, people forget that Facebook, Snapchat and Twitter are all accounts which are on the internet. Anytime you use one of these websites, anybody can look at it. It gives the insurance company, defense lawyers or investigators the ability to see what you are posting.
Normally, it gives them the ability to understand what you are doing. That may or may not be compatible with what you are claiming in your Workers’ Compensation or Personal Injury lawsuit. So the notice that we’re giving you is that if you have any kind of litigation that is ongoing, be that Workers’ Compensation or a civil lawsuit, please get off any of the social media accounts. That way the insurance company does not get free information about you and your activities on a daily basis.
It’s most embarrassing when the insurance company knows exactly what is going on and may get information which will be used against you in your lawsuit.
