You may be wondering how this is even possible. Social media has become such an integral part of our lives that broadcasting our daily activities has become the new norm. It is critical to remember that you must refrain from publishing on social media while filing a personal injury lawsuit.
Why? Because your claim will be denied if you indicate that you are injured and then post an exercise routine or a photo of yourself holding a baby while enjoying a relaxing beach day with your family on social media.
The objective of insurance adjusters and brokers is to discredit you. They will examine all of your social media profiles for information that could be used against you.
We recommend that you refrain from posting on social media until your case is resolved. Regardless of your privacy settings on social media platforms, nothing you ever disclose online will be completely private. If you must use social media, your personal injury lawyers advise you to change your privacy settings on each platform.

DO NOT DM ANYONE MENTIONING YOUR ACCIDENT
