Can my Facebook postings be used against me in court is a big questions that is on a lot of people’s minds.
For us here at Boston Law Group, LLC, we advise all of our injury clients to stay off of sites like Facebook because a strong argument can be made against you if you post information which can be seen as contradictory.
In a time where social media can give quick snippets into someone’s life, it can be easy to take an image, video, or statement and run with it.
For example, you may be complaining of a serious back injury but a few days later you are posting a short video clip on Twitter of you horseback riding.
A strong argument can be made that you really are not too hurt if you can get up on a galloping horse.
As to how your state specifically deals with social medical and the rules of evidence, speak to a legal professional in your jurisdiction.
