How does social media use by car accident victims affect a personal injury lawsuit?

July 1, 2010 by Steven M. Gursten

Michigan accident attorney’s article featured in American Association for Justice newsletter

I’d like to thank my friend, attorney Steve Gordon, for including my findings on how accident victims using Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, blogs – and many other social media sites – can ruin their car accident cases.

Steve cited my blog in his article, “Social Networking Sites: A Usage Practical Guide to Discovery & Admissibility, which was featured in the American Association for Justice Spring 2010 newsletter. My blog, Attorney Advice to Car Accident Victims: Control Your Facebook, Twitter, Blogging, highlighted the perils of surveillance regarding social media. It reviewed how defense attorneys and auto insurance adjusters looking for ways to avoid responsibility for the harms they have caused, can take old photos or status updates of clients engaging in activities that they’re now unable to do because of their car accidents, and turn them around.

Steve Gordon reiterated this point for thousands of accident attorneys across the country – who are members of the Association for Justice. Thanks, Steve. This article is unquestionably a great resource for personal injury attorneys looking to protect their clients, especially with the advantageous popularity and reliance on social media sites.
