Do insurance adjusters have a right to use what I post on Facebook against me in my Georgia car accident claim?

Insurance adjusters can use what you post on Facebook against you in your Georgia car accident claim. While it may seem like an ethically unsound practice, most social media content is public.

That makes it your responsibility to protect yourself against insurance adjusters who will do what it takes to discredit your Georgia car accident claim. A Georgia car injury lawyer can help.

Social media is an extremely popular way to stay connected. However, it could also be used against you potentially if you seek compensation through a Georgia car accident claim.

It may seem normal to post something on Facebook about your car accident and your injuries. However, even a seemingly innocent comment could somehow end up being twisted and distorted. 

You especially don't want to give an opinion or state what you think happened in the accident. A comment about "talking to your mom on the phone" when the accident occurred could be detrimental. Even if the other person was completely at fault for your accident, that bit of information could be used in a way to show that you were distracted and may persuade the court to determine that you were partially at fault.

Insurance adjusters will use whatever means necessary to discredit your Georgia car accident claim. So it is probably not a good idea to use Facebook while you are in the midst of your case. 

If you have any questions concerning your legal rights and how to protect your claim, you should speak with a Georgia car injury lawyer as soon as possible.
