A day before my car accident trial I received an email from the opposing attorney with 3 videos of my client dancing. They wanted to use these videos as proof that my client wasn’t injured. One of the videos was from my client’s wedding day! I shook my head in disbelief, I mean are you not allowed to dance on your wedding day? The timeline of all the videos was outside the frame of the car accident and treatment so I wasn’t bothered. All the videos where gotten from social media and the wedding video was from a vendor’s business page. Insurance companies are looking for evidence to use against the plaintiff to devalue their injury claim. Social media postings are common research tools. That is why posting on social media during car accident treatment can have adverse effects on your case. At the minimum, make your settings private and don’t accept friend requests from people you don’t know.
