Stay Off Social Media After an Accident

If you suffer the misfortune of a car accident you are probably shaken, stressed, and unsure of how to proceed. Many of us take to our Twitter or Facebook accounts to share our thoughts or life updates the moment they happen, and while this is harmless in any other context, it can be absolutely disastrous after an accident. Even if you feel your post or update is inoffensive and cannot possibly be used against you, you must not underestimate the opposition and their determination to avoid paying you the compensation you deserve.

Before You Post, Don’t

Participating in social media by staying up-to-date with your friends and family is not the kind of online behavior that can backfire. However, updating your accounts with photos or even leaving comments which reveal details about your personal life are examples of what can land you in trouble. You may be wondering how to combat these potential disasters, and the answer is simple: stay silent. A casual photo depicting your family’s weekend activities can be perceived as proof of your lack of injuries, reducing the validity of your claim.
