You may be feeling #blessed after coming out of a car accident alive or with minimal injuries, and you probably want to share with your online followers about your well being. However, posting an inappropriate comment or photo can have major effects on any potential injury lawsuits or insurance claims. Here are the Do’s and Don’ts about posting on social media after a car accident.
The best course of action is to not post anything online at all. Your first course of action after an accident is to call a lawyer. You can trust the Louisiana lawyers at the Schwartz Law Firm LLC to be there to help you navigate the social media waters. We have two convenient locations, one in Metairie and another in Baton Rouge. Call us today at 504-837-2263 for your free consultation.
