Get The Prosecutor On Your Side

My name is Danielle Diaz. One of the things I've learned in life, both inside and outside the courtroom, is that it is important to not see others as your enemy. Even though you may see the prosecutor as your enemy, he or she is just trying to do a job. It may be possible that you can get a prosecutor or the judge to be sympathetic and get him or her on your side. In order to accomplish this, you need to understand the law. I feel that most individuals do not understand the law, which is why I was motivated to create this blog.

4 Tips For Handling Social Media During Your Personal Injury Case

Douglas Thompson

When you have been injured and have filed a personal injury case against the party responsible for your accident, they are going to do everything they can to either have your case dismissed or to lower the amount of compensation that you are awarded. One way the opposite party will go about doing this is by gathering evidence from your social media posts. This is why when you're in the middle of dealing with a personal injury case, you should consider these four tips for handling your social media posts:

  1. Turn Accounts to Private: The first thing you should do is change your social media accounts to private. By doing this, it prevents the opposite party from easily being able to see what you have posted. The only people who will be able to see what you share will be your friends and family. 
  2. Don't Share Updates: Just because you have set your accounts to private doesn't mean that you should post about your case. You never know if someone may see it somehow and use it against you. It's important not to talk about your injuries and how you are recovering. You also shouldn't post about your doctor appointments or anything else related to your case. 
  3. Don't Post Pictures of Physical Activities: If you are going to be traveling at any point or spending time with family outdoors, you shouldn't post pictures. When you post pictures of you doing anything physically demanding, it can be used against you, even if you were just outdoors and not actually being active at all. If the picture looks like you were participating in something physical, then don't post it. 
  4. Talk to Family and Friends About What they Post: Let family and friends know in person that you would appreciate if they do not post any pictures of you during this time or any status updates about how you are doing. Let them know that this can cause problems with the success of your case. They are sure to be understanding and this can help ensure that your social media accounts and free from anything that can affect the outcome of your case. 

When you seriously consider these four tips about using social media during the time of dealing with your personal injury case, you can be sure that you help yourself and your personal injury lawyer like one from Geoffrey S.
