If you are seeking compensation through a Florida personal injury claim, you should know that your use of social media can impact your case. Protecting an injury claim is best done a number of ways, including shutting down any social media accounts that you use, such as Facebook or Twitter. 

What you say and do can be used against you, including your behavior on social media accounts. 

There are 5 ways that social media can end up hurting your Florida personal injury claim, including: 

  • status updates on Facebook or Twitter accounts;
  • comments that you make on your social media accounts;
  • comments that others make on your social media accounts;
  • personal pictures and videos that you upload; and
  • personal blogs. 

What you say in each of these can come back to haunt you. This is why it’s never a good idea to talk about your Florida personal injury claim through social media.

A Palm Beach injury lawyer can discuss with you how even seemingly innocent photos, comments and updates from your social media profiles can be misconstrued. Your lawyer will also offer advice on how you can still protect your case should you continue to use social media.
