In the United States, 81 percent of the population has a social media profile and there is a constant increase in the number of social network users. Social media is an incredible outlet for individuals who love to share their life events. It is additionally a good tool for staying in touch with friends and family. However, it can have an antagonistic effect if you share excessively. Especially if you get into an accident and file a claim for your personal injuries.

One careless update can have massive unintended consequences on your injury lawsuit. Hence, it may be in your best interest to simply minimize the use of social media accounts while your personal injury case is pending.
