Social Media and Your Personal Injury Case

by Alex

How you use social media during your personal injury case could affect its outcome. Insurance companies often monitor these accounts and use posts to downplay your injuries’ severity or deny the claim. Our attorneys may offer advice and guidance to clients about social media and their personal injury cases.

At Shulman & Hill, we provide free case reviews for injury victims in New York. You can discuss your rights and options with our team today. Call (555) 555-5555 to learn more.

Best Practices for Social Media Use During a Personal Injury Case

We may tell clients not to use social media during their personal injury case. It is too easy to post about something unrelated that could be taken out of context. However, we also know this is not always realistic. Some people use social media accounts for work or to keep in touch with friends or family. For those who cannot stop using the apps entirely, we recommend the following:

  • Check your privacy settings and be careful who you allow to follow you
  • Never post about the accident or your injuries
  • Do not post about your activities
  • Ask friends not to tag you or post pictures

Unfortunately, one slip-up on social media could make it challenging to secure fair compensation in your case. We can fight any pushback from the insurer based on social media posts, but this makes winning compensation more challenging.

Our Attorneys Provide Clients With Advice and Guidance During Their Cases

When you hire our lawyer to handle your New York personal injury case, you can expect advice and guidance throughout the process. While this may include social media, it could also cover many other activities and actions. We can often take steps to make navigating our clients’ cases easier and avoid putting their right to fair compensation in jeopardy.

Our attorneys know how the insurance companies work and what they could do to determine how much money an injury victim receives, if any. When we can support a fair payout with strong evidence, and there is nothing—including social media posts or out-of-context statements—to downplay the severity of their injuries, we may be able to recover fair and just compensation through settlement negotiations or at trial.

How Can Social Media Affect a New York Personal Injury Case?

Your social media posts could affect your personal injury case because insurance companies often review these accounts when assessing a case. They consider the police report, relevant medical records, physical evidence, eyewitness statements, and other documentation to show what happened and whose carelessness caused it.

They assess the injuries and determine how they affect the victim’s life. As a part of this, they check social media accounts to ensure the party’s activities match what you might expect with the injuries listed. They may reduce or deny the claim if they see posts where you can continue with recreational activities. Almost anything could lead the adjuster to believe your injuries are not as serious as you claim.

We may be able to challenge this. People often have good days and bad days following a traumatic injury. However, this makes winning your case more challenging than it has to be.
