  • Most of the personal injury case does take a long
    time, depending on the complication of the case
    and each and every part of a piece of information
    is important, even because of the boon in the
    technology of social media, whatever you share
    can also be a part of your case, how?
  • Here the personal injury attorneys of Camden
    County are answering you, read further!

3
  • The use of social media is growing day by day and
    to be true people are very active on social
    sites, good or bad, one post just gets viral and
    trending within minutes, so it has such a power
    as you can see.
  • And according to Pew Research Center Report,
    they estimated that 74 of people (the adults)
    who used internet for other purposes also, used
    social media sites.
  • Here, what I mean to say is internet is no longer
    used for browsing and searching but also for
    being socially active.

  • Talking about social sites, even the legal
    industry is affected by it- whether it is the
    clients, lawyers, law-firm, oppositions, etc.
    whosoever, the details shared on sites can be
    used an evidence to favor your case or to dismiss
    your case, depends!
  • And this is why the personal injury attorney of
    Camden County says that one should be very
    careful about their social persona when it comes
    to filing a personal injury lawsuit.
  • The question arises how, isnt it! Well, to clear
    your doubts, you should consider these following
    things below

5
1. Your Social Posts Can Be Harmful To Your
Injury Lawsuit
  • As a fact, individuals claim for personal injury
    because theyve suffered the injuries and pain
    for which they werent responsible like chronic
    pain, leg or hand injuries, broken bones, mental
    disturbance, brain injuries, damages in tissues,
    etc. And as such, they seek remuneration for 2
    things
  • Medical expenses those are associated with the
    injury
  • Non-economic damages that are related to pain and
    suffering

6
  • These 2 things are directly related to personal
    injury claim, and the person suffering will file
    a lawsuit to claim compensation for most probably
    these two reasons. And in order, to confirm these
    damages are true in nature, a claimant needs to
    call his medical experts and specialists
    witnesses, to prove his point fair.
  • The job of the opposition or defense, of the
    claimant, is to do the opposite move i.e. drag up
    the evidence to prove that the defense is
    innocent and give the least amount trying to
    close the case once and for all.

7
  • Just for an example
  • Think you are an applicant who wants to seek
    damages for pain and injuries, the defense would
    here would not sit back once they get a notice as
    you filed a claim, they would immediately try to
    drag up evidence and suppose they come up to your
    social sites and they land up on a photograph
    which shows youre a professional hiker or
    climber, and you want to seek damages for those
    injuries at that instant you wont get the
    compensation because the defense would present
    all your smiling and hiking photographs saying it
    was not the defense fault and because the
    photographs look quite convincing, you might not
    receive any compensation furthermore.

2. Evidence On Your Social Media Could Be Used
Against You
  • The people involved in accidents often suffer
    terribly facing emotional breakdown, injuries,
    loss of enjoyment, depression, anxiety, etc. are
    all part of the sufferings that are faced by the
    victims involved in accidents. And a person who
    wants to be compensated for his/her injuries
    needs proofs to prove his/her wounds.
  • The defense during a personal injury claim could
    address Facebook and alternative social media
    sites or forums, like a claimants personal
    weblog, so as to contradict claims of emotional
    distress, depression, etc. and also the proof
    that they use may be more surprising than you
    would assume.

9
  • Instead of the plain like footage of the
    applicant enjoying life or smiling amongst
    friends the defense could use one thing as on
    the face of it innocuous as posts on the
    applicants page want the claimant a cheerful
    birthday, whereas creating the claim that if the
    applicant was socially isolated and outcast, he
    or she wouldn't receive birthday needs from
    numerous alternative users.
  • Though the link between birthday needs on a
    Facebook page and depression could seem loose,
    make certain that the defense can pull upon
    something they will so as to cut back the number
    of cash they're chargeable for.

3. Your Social Media Postings Are A Public
Record
  • To be true, yes your social media postings are a
    public record, anything that you post publicly on
    the internet say social sites or any person who
    posts something about you can be used as evidence
    and let me say it can be used against you as
    well, the defense attorneys are always good in
    this.
  • Except for the private messages, most of the
    things can be easily accessed and used against
    you.

11
4. Best Practices For Social Media
  • Posting anything online once an accident could
    also be dangerous to your claim, even though
    you're thinking that what you're posting is
    harmless or is in no method associated with your
    injury.
  • Once you have got been in an accident, you must
    briefly suspend all of your social media
    accounts.

12
  • At the very least, you must make certain that
    your account is ready to non-public, which you
    are doing not settle for any new friend requests
    during the period after your accident.
  • You must also ask friends and relations to
    refrain from posting something associated with
    you once your accident and to line their profiles
    to non-public as well.

    social media plays in your injury claim and hence
