When an individual brings legal action because they claim that they were injured on the job or due to the negligence of another party, it is important to make sure that they are very careful about what they post on their social media profiles. In fact, there have been a number of cases over the years that were stopped because the party who claimed they were injured posted photos of them doing an activity that they would not be able to do if they were truly injured on their social media.
Though many people believe that staying off social media is only applicable to personal injury cases, it is also an important rule to follow if an individual is involved in a workers’ compensation case. For example, if an individual says that they have had a leg injury because of an accident in the workplace and are collecting benefits as a result but then post on Facebook that they went on a ski trip, it can mean bad news. The individual can put their pension, their disability benefits, and more in jeopardy if anyone on the other side saw the pictures.
