Why You Shouldn’t Post on Social Media After a Car Accident

You have been injured by another driver’s negligence, and – in order to fully recover – you’ll need the compensation to which you are entitled, which means filing your claim with the at-fault driver’s insurance provider. Working closely with an experienced Beverly Hills car accident attorney is one of the most important steps you can take to protect your claim, and another is giving social media a pass until your car accident claim is finalized.

Why Refraining from Posting Is in Your Best Interest

The insurance company is fully invested in keeping your settlement as low as it possibly can, and toward this end, it will be watching you (in search of any information it can find). Social media often amounts to a goldmine of information. According to Smart Insights (citing research by Global WebIndex), the average amount of time spent on social media each day is nearly two and a half hours, and in that time, you can give away far more information than you realize. Keep all the following in mind:

  • Even if you keep your posts strictly private, the line between private and not can easily be blurred when it comes to social media.
  • We tend to paint things in their best light on social media, which can weaken your claim of serious losses.
  • By posting about your accident, you could lessen your right to confidentiality.

Erring on the side of caution – by not posting – is the best policy after a car accident.
