Social media is all the rage these days. It’s seems as if Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ are continuing to grow in popularity and have become an important part of most of our lives. In fact, people seem to write down their thoughts on social media sites before ever considering what they are sharing with the world.
Even after an auto accident, people will make comments, post pictures, and say things they really shouldn’t be saying on social media. The problem is the misconception that comments and pictures are only being seen by their friends. However, if you chose to pursue a personal injury case in Illinois, the insurance company, defense attorney and experts will get access to your social media accounts. Unfortunately, one wrong comment or even a picture can diminish the value of your case. For this reason, we tell our clients to have no involvement in social media following a car accident.
To share the details of your case with someone, pick up your cellphone and dial us instead of tweeting or facebooking about your accident. We will provide you with a free consultation. Simply call our Chicago law firm at 312-332-1400 or contact us online at http://www.lane-lane.com/contact.cfm.
