There’s a lot of information about the things you should do immediately following a crash, such as who to contact, reporting the accident, and more. However, what you may not always be told about are the things that you should avoid following a car accident.
Unfortunately, despite the insurance company’s claim to care for you in a time when you need it most, there are some situations that may make it so the provider will try to deny your claim. One thing that can be damaging, even if you don’t know it, is social media.
Don’t Post What Contradicts Your Case
In many situations, you may be filing a claim because you have suffered severe injuries as a result of negligence. You may be looking to the insurance company to provide you compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, and more.
Even if you think that your social media profiles are private, know that the insurance company has tactics they use to access information about you. As such, you want to avoid posting anything that may contradict your claim and put your potential compensation at risk.
A few of the things you want to avoid include:
- Openly talking about the entire claim and its intricacies
- Posting photos that go against what you’re making the claim for
- Making claims of things you’ll do activity-wise and more
The more the insurance company can find regarding your activities after the accident, the more they can try to devalue your claim. In these matters, what you say and do matter, and having a lawyer to protect your rights can be one of the most effective things you can do moving forward.
