In these technological times, it’s not surprising that when a person gets into an accident they want to put the details on Facebook, Twitter, blogspot or some other social media site.  However, it’s important to know that these postings can often be used against you by the insurance company and their attorneys if you later decide to make a personal injury claim and may possibly even be admissible in court.  While posting accident pictures and discussing the accident with your friends and family online may seem innocent, it’s always best to keep these communications private and not post anything about your accident or injuries, or the impact the accident has had on you or others.  However, if you have already posted something regarding your accident on a social media site, do not delete it since that might be considered spoilation of evidence.
