5 Tips for Keeping Texas Insurance Investigators Out of Your Social Media Profiles

Posted by John J. Kahn, Jr. | Feb 12, 2012 | 0 Comments

After a car accident, companies that provide auto insurance may use social media to investigate the veracity of your claim. Follow these tips and speak with an insurance lawyer in Houston about how to best protect your privacy and your case.  
  • Social media content may be used in court. Knowing that should be enough to keep you careful about what you post.
  • Check your privacy settings. Social media sites, especially Facebook, are constantly changing their privacy policies. Sometimes this can backfire by resetting your privacy options to “default.”
  • Be careful about what you post. Even being “too happy sounding” can damage your case if you're claiming serious injury and loss of enjoyment of life.
  • Make sure you go over all of your social profiles, not just the heavy hitters like Facebook and Twitter. When was the last time you checked to see what's in your Flickr account?
  • Always ask yourself, “who is going to see this?” If there is any chance that what you are about to post to your blog, your Facebook, Twitter, or anything else might be used against you, it's probably better to keep it to yourself.  
Protect your claim by consulting with an insurance attorney in Houston who understands the methodologies that insurance adjusters and investigators will employ to invade your privacy and collect data against your claim. You not only need, but deserve, to have a passionate advocate protecting your legal rights.

When you have experienced legal representation on your side, you can rest assured that your attorney will fight for all compensation to which you may be entitled, including past, current and future medical expenses after a car accident; pain and suffering; lost earnings or earning potential; or wrongful death benefits.
