Social Security, Workers' Compensation and Social Networking
Social networking sites like Facebook, MySpace and Google+ are a great way to keep in touch with family and friends. Many people fill their social networking profiles with their thoughts, conversations and pictures. Usually, social networking profiles focus on the positive. Sometimes people exaggerate their activities and abilities on these sites. People post pictures of vacations and holidays, not pictures of themselves lying on the sofa in pain.
Unfortunately, defense attorneys, insurance adjusters and judges like Facebook as much as you do. Increasingly, social networking sites are being used to evaluate an injured person's credibility and honesty.
McCroskey Law advises that all workers' compensation, Social Security and personal injury claimants make their social networking profiles private. You should not share your information with anyone you don't know. You do not want an insurance company or Social Security making assumptions about you based on a Facebook profile.
