These days insurance companies look at all of your postings on social media sites
especially facebook so if you are involved in a case for significant injuries caused
by another, you need to be very careful what you put on any social media site. Of course honesty is always the best policy but my advice is to stay off social media
while your case is pending because you may think what you are posting is innocent
but carriers and prospective jurors may see it differently. For example, if you have
a serious back injury you should not be doing activities inconsistent with your
injury or that would aggravate it. And you certainly shouldn't be posting or bragging on line that you are doing any activity which a reasonable person (a juror for example)
might interpret as showing that your injury is not as bad as you say it is.
Bottom line is be very careful what you say on any social media site. No one is asking you to lie. You should never exaggerate or lie. If you are doing things inconsistent with your injury you need to stop doing them and ask your doctor if you should be engaging in such activities. Just remember, social media sites can be your friend but also your enemy if you are involved in a case because the other side is looking for anything you say or do to use against you in your case.
