How Social Media Can Negatively Affect Your Bellevue Car Crash Case

Social media is an outlet for many people, and a way to share your thoughts and pictures with the world. But be wary: sharing certain pictures and posting some thoughts can negatively affect you if you were in a Bellevue car crash and are filing a lawsuit because of it. If the wrong person sees what you’ve been up to, you may lose your chances of winning.

Incriminating Pictures

You claim that in your accident you hurt your neck and are now suffering from whiplash. You stated that the pain was so severe that you can barely get out of bed, let alone work. However, the picture you just posted on Facebook shows you playing volleyball with your friends. If the person you are suing, or his lawyer, sees your picture, he will likely bring it to court and there’s a high chance you will lose your case. Avoid posting any kind of pictures on Facebook, as you never know who might see them.

Location, Location, Location

Going to the beach? Taking a trip to Seattle to visit the Space Needle? If you are, don’t post it. You’re supposed to be injured because of your car crash. Going to these locations and telling the world about it downplays your ailments and reduces your chances of winning your case, even if you really are severely hurt.

Too Honest Tweets

Although lawyers assume their clients are telling them the truth, it doesn’t always happen that way. Tweeting that you are lying about your injuries or exaggerating them so that you can get money and not have to work anymore is pretty much a nail in the coffin. You can forget about receiving any compensation once the defendant’s lawyer shows the judge these damaging posts.

Getting injured in a Bellevue car crash is costly, and unless you have an experienced attorney on your side, you many end up paying for the medical bills and vehicle repairs yourself, which we don’t think is fair.

The attorneys of the Andrew Kim Law Firm will fight for your rights and do whatever we can to get you the compensation you deserve. Contact us today to speak with a lawyer about your situation.
