There are few things worse than sustaining an injury as a result of someone else’s negligence. Unfortunately, people are critically injured in a wide range of accidents every single day here in the state of Texas. If you are one of them, you are most likely now looking to file a personal injury claim so that you can recover the compensation you deserve and need to heal. That said, there are several things you should (and should not) do when filing a personal injury claim. Among the most important things to avoid when bringing a personal injury claim is using social media. Please continue reading and speak with a seasoned Bexar County, Texas personal injury lawyer from Sahadi Legal Group to learn more about why you should avoid posting on social media while filing a personal injury claim and how our legal team can help maximize your chances of recovering your rightful compensation.

Why do I need to refrain from using social media during the personal injury claim process?

The first thing you need to understand is that insurance companies are businesses. Like most businesses, their primary concern is their bottom line. Therefore, when a person sues them for compensation, they can expect the insurance company in question will do everything in its power to disprove their injury claim and deny them their rightful compensation.

One of the primary methods insurance companies will use to “disprove” personal injury claims is monitoring the social media profiles of anyone filing the injury claim. The purpose of this is to obtain evidence that may contradict their injury claim. For example, if you claim you suffered a broken leg and cannot walk after your injury, though you post a picture of you running a marathon, insurance companies can, and most likely will, use this picture against you. Even if they have to take a picture out of context, you can bet that if they think it may help their case, they’ll do it.

For this reason, it’s best to simply steer clear of social media altogether until the resolution of your personal injury claim. If you have any further questions or you believe you may have a valid personal injury claim and are looking to move forward with the process, please don’t hesitate to speak with us today.
