Those Facebook and Twitter Postings Can Be Used against Your Personal Injury Case

  • Don't post jokes or photoshopped pictures that can be misinterpreted or taken seriously out of context.
  • Post only what you don't mind everybody and anybody seeing. You never know who will repost it and who will have access to see it. As I said, lawyers can now make demands for User Ids to see private messages and postings.
  • If you are involved in a case, be truthful with your lawyer.
  • Don't post anything that contradicts what you have told your lawyer, even if it is an old picture or not meant to be taken seriously.
  • Don't post anything that can cause misinterpretations about your character or your actions.
  • Most importantly, be smart and use common sense. The Internet is a powerful tool but it can cause as much damage as good.

If you are involved in a case and have concerns about your social media, speak to your lawyer. They are on your side and can only work with you when communication lines are open.
