Please be aware!  

We are seeing more and more cases where the insurance companies and insurance defense lawyers are searching social media sites such as Facebook and YouTube for photos and blogs about what the clients are doing while they are claiming to be injured. The courts are ordering injured plaintiffs to produce their Facebook pages to the insurance company lawyers. 

Initially people were careful about what photos they posted online and who had access to them but these days everybody is more willing to post just about anything.  Your friends may have photos of you, that can be searched by your name, tagged on their pages. Your own privacy settings cannot protect you entirely.

Here is what you can do to protect yourself and your possible injury claim:

1)  Make sure there is nothing you would not want your mother or the insurance company lawyer to see.

2)  Search your name to see that what comes up is acceptable.  Make whatever adjustments are necessary.

3)  Check your privacy settings.

4)  Don't answer emails or requests from people you don't know (keep in mind that because of the lawsuit process, the opposing legal team knows a lot about you and could send you an email that might make you think you know each other).

If you are not sure if your pages are acceptable, speak to your personal injury lawyer about it now.  The Andrew Kim Law Firm represents injured persons from car, motorcycle, bicycle and truck accidents.  If you would like to discuss your case with an experienced Bellevue personal injury attorney, call us and 425-289-1990 or toll free at 1-800-636-3676.
