Social Media Post Causes Crash Victim Millions of Dollars in Settlement

Social Media Post Causes Crash Victim Millions of Dollars in Settlement -VA Lawyer Tom Fitzgerald Listen as Thomas Fitzgerald explains how a simple social media post can cost your personal injury case millions of dollars. If you have a personal injury case pending, you should not be using social media. To demonstrate how this can be extremely hazardous to your case, we will examine a case in which a beautiful young woman suffered severe injuries resulting from the negligence of another driver. As the case approached trial, settlement negotiations began. The case did not settle at the first settlement conference, but a second settlement conference was held, and at that meeting the plaintiff claimed she was so traumatized by the first conference that she went home and could not go out. She seemed believable until she was handed a picture of her two days after that first conference. In that picture, she was standing on the fifty yard line at a football bowl game. Her settlement amount fell to half of what she was demanding. Posts on social media involving you can be disastrous to your personal injury case.
