Case Killer: Putting Damaging Information on Facebook

Facebook can absolutely kill your personal injury case. Putting the fun things you do on Facebook can make it look like there are inconsistencies with you injury claim. The insurance company and the defense lawyer can misinterpret your Facebook posts. They will access your Facebook and use your photos and status updates to make it look like you are exaggerating your injury claim. We see it happen all the time and it can be a case killer. So if you're involved in a personal injury claim, put your settings on private and watch what you post. You must assume that the defense attorney and the insurance company will be watching your Facebook for pieces of evidence they can use against you in front of the jury.
