How can your Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or any other social media postings ruin your medical malpractice case?
When you file a suit against an entity or a third person who caused you any type of injury the defense’s attorneys can be monitoring any activity on your social media. This helps them to present a strong defense to argue that you are not injured and they should minimize or eliminate the compensation you are entitled to. Let’s say you are suing a restaurant for leg and arm injuries caused by a negligent act on their behalf and the week after the accident you post a picture skydiving or performing a kickflip. These pictures or videos will be presented as evidence that your injuries aren’t as severe as you are claiming putting your case in jeopardy. So think twice before posting anything on your social media accounts while you have a personal injury case pending.
