At Carr and Carr Attorneys, we work hard for our clients and want to prepare you for everything that can happen during your injury claim process. During the process, your use of social media can affect the outcome of your case.
Most everyone has one or more social media accounts, and they are a great way to stay connected. If you are currently going through an injury claim process, we urge you to be cautious in the information that you post on such sites.
Insurance companies and attorneys on the other side of our cases use information on such sites such as Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter in ways that are harmful to our clients.
Courts have ruled information that people post on social media can be used in a legal proceeding. You may be confronted with posts and pictures from your social media accounts during your case. If your case goes to trial, jurors may also investigate your online profile themselves.
We encourage our clients to be aware of what they are posting and have posted in the past.
- Do not make any comments about your lawsuit.
- Do not post photos or links that could be used to portray you negatively.
- Remove any previous above-mentioned posts.
Private profiles do not mean the information shared on your account cannot be used or found. Please be aware that there are ways that others can view this information. Contact your legal team if you need help reviewing your current profiles.
