Social media is an extremely popular outlet for many people. Whether to keep in contact with friends and family, reach out for advice/support, or simply to share your thoughts, social media is an integral part of many people's lives.
However, if you or a loved one has been involved in a car wreck, it is essential to avoid posting post anything about your wreck to any social media accounts. Unfortunately, a seemingly harmless post or tweet can have serious negative consequences on your claim.
Rather than reaching out publicly for advice regarding your accident, the best course of action is to contact the experienced car accident attorneys at SJ Injury Attorneys.
Social Media Can Hurt Your Claim
Social media can be detrimental to your case in many ways. Once you post on Facebook or share on Twitter, you are making more personal information public. Sharing about enjoying time outside or attending a get-together shortly after your accident could be used as evidence to show that you are not injured or suffering from emotional distress.
Even common replies to family and friends such as "I'm fine" or "I'm ok" could be used against your case. Comments or photos of the accident could be construed to be an admission of fault. The best advice for social media usage after an auto accident is to post nothing at all and to contact an experienced attorney.
