  • Lawyer for car accident injury: Managing Social Media and Your Accident Claim

    June 18, 2018

    Personal injury lawyers have to safeguard the rights and interests of their clients. That’s why we ensure that we keep abreast of new trends and technologies, social media being one of them. 

    Today, most Canadians have a presence on some social media platform or the other, often multiple ones. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc are popular not with only young people, but increasing numbers of seniors as well. Employers can cross-check and confirm resumes and job experience through candidates’ social media profiles and posts. 

    Social Media In Personal Injury Claims 

    Insurance companies and other parties engaged in litigation are a major user of these platforms. They use them as a surveillance or investigative tool. 

    For instance, if you have been involved in an accident and are claiming compensation for injuries but you post comments on social media telling your friends and family that you’re fine, no worries, etc, this can be used against you. 

    Clients may also post photos of themselves having a get-together with friends and family, outings, picnics etc while they have made a claim for pain and suffering. 

    Insurance claims-adjusters have their own investigative teams that browse through social media sites and zero in on apparent contradictions in claims. Slip-and-fall accident lawyers are well aware of this. 

    Investigative agencies use Google searches to verify your social and financial status, employment, the kind of home you live in, street-address, financial assets, health, social/educational/economic background etc. 

    An experienced Lawyer for car accident injury can advise and assist you to manage your social media presence till full settlement.
