CONFIDENTIALITY, AND SOCIAL MEDIA SITES.
If you have been injured in a car wreck or slip and fall or injuried in any way that involves and insurance claim or a lawsuit...
Please do not discuss your case with anyone without advance notice to your lawyer.
This is to avoid waiving the attorney-client privilege or other confidentiality protections.
Also, YOU MUST NOT POST ANYTHING SENSITIVE OR ANYTHING ABOUT YOUR CASE TO ANY “SOCIAL MEDIA” SITES, nor send any information about the case through texting or e-mail, etc. (except to your attorney, since that is privileged information).
If you have any question about what is “sensitive”, please call your attorney before posting.
Defendants and their insurance companies and their investigators routinely monitor such sites and seek
e-mail and text addresses of claimants to obtain information, ...
EVEN if you have privacy settings... in a lawsuit they can subpoena such information directly from the service providers.
Not only could you damage your case, any “friend” on your site could be forced to become a witness and discuss all conversations they ever had with you about many topics.
Often injured folks have a good day and can do some activity on a good day... the picture of the person posted on the Internet doing the activity...doesn't show the jury they then after trying an activity (perhaps while on pain medications) were then up all night in pain or in bed for 3 days following that.
Insurance claims departments and their hench men don't care about you; they only want to take money from your family.
PLEASE TAKE THIS WARNING SERIOUSLY.
MAKE IT A GREAT DAY!!!
