Why should I stay away from social media during the claims process?

Avoid the following actions online to avoid a negative impact on your personal injury claim:

  • Posting anything regarding your case. This can include the injuries, the other party’s attorney, the accident, and anyone involved in the incident.
  • Friends and family posting about the injured party throughout the claims process.
  • Having social media profiles in the public setting.
  • Accepting follow requests or friend requests from accounts you do not personally know.
  • Posting your social life on Snapchat, Facebook, Instagram, or any other social media platforms. Any piece of social media content posted on your behalf can be sued against you in court.

How can I improve my chances of winning a personal injury claim?

There are many steps that you can take to improve your chances of winning a personal injury claim. One of the most important steps to take when facing a personal injury lawsuit is to hire an experienced and skilled Maryland personal injury attorney who will help satisfy the burden of proof by collecting and presenting all evidence necessary. Another way to increase your chances of a successful claim is to take photos of your injuries as well as the aftermath of the accident. You can also collect witnesses’ contact information to support your claim as well as obtaining a copy of the police report.
