When something out of the ordinary happens, we are inclined to post about it on social media for everyone to see. While this has become the go-to for most of us who are connected on a number of social media platforms, this isn’t the best idea when you have been injured due to another. This is true in any number of scenarios, whether you have been injured in a car accident, at work, in a public place, etc. Even if your accounts are private and shared only to your closest of friends, you never know whose hands that information may end up in.
If you make your injury public by way of social media, you are setting yourself up to be investigated in a number of ways. Firstly, the opposition will do everything in their power to hold your post against you. While this may not seem like a possibility, it is essential you don’t underestimate the intentions of those whom you are claiming are responsible for your injury.
Anything you have posted may be used as evidence to disprove your claim, even if it is completely off base and illegitimate in regards to the situation at hand. In fact, we believe it is best you don’t post anything at all following an accident or injury--a post that shows you happily smiling with your friends, family, or loved ones may be used to perpetuate the fact that your injuries aren’t as bad as you claim.
