You may have a desire to disclose the facts of your accident or information about the damages that you have incurred on social media platforms following your accident, however there are several ways this could impact your case.
We generally advice our clients not to disclose this information on social media because those are statements of the person and can be used against them at the time of the filing of the claim with the opposing party or in court if the matter actually goes that far. For that reason, we generally do not like clients discussing matters about their personal injury claims on social media platforms.
