How Social Media Can Affect Your Personal Injury Claim


How Social Media Can Affect Your Personal Injury Claim

When you have a personal injury case, insurance companies will resort to any tactic to reduce or eliminate the value of your claim. The oldest way is character assassination, or to make it look like you are dishonest. The latest method the insurance companies use is to request your social media accounts.

Cossé Law Firm strives to help clients find the maximum possible financial compensation immediately following an accident. Our goal is to help our clients find the utmost of medical care while also finding the means to provide for themselves and their family. If you have been injured, contact us by calling (504) 265-1600.

Making the Most of Your Injury Claim

What you post can and will be used against you. If something about your post conveys that you are well and not legitimately injured. You do not want to give the insurance companies any reason to doubt you. It doesn’t matter—it might be the first day after your accident and you are feeling great, only to pay for it two days after. All that matters is what you look like at that moment.

The old saying that “a picture is worth a thousand words” is no truer than in the case of social media. So make sure that your account is private and not public and be careful what you post. It could come back to haunt you.
