Social Media Impact on PI Claims

By July 19, 2017January 25th, 2024No Comments

In a personal injury case people seek damages that are not just medical bills or other medical expenses. They also seek compensation for pain and suffering that happened because of their accident. One way attorneys show their client has suffered because of the accident, is by showing medical records and testimony from the client. They also use testimony from friends and family who can show the jury just how badly the accident has affected the client. An opposing attorney can counter this by saying that the victim is not suffering and that there is nothing wrong with them. Social media can be used by the attorneys in a case to show that the person was not injured. The videos would show the client participating in everyday activities, like going out with friends or doing manual labor. The best advice is to lay low on social media and not post anything that you wouldn’t want the court to see.
