This week’s Tip of the Week featuring Lloyd Gathings, a senior partner at Gathings Law, is to not talk about your injury on social media. These days, people use social media to stay connected with their friends and family and share bits and pieces of their lives online. However, if you are injured because of a car wreck, an on-the-job injury, defective product, or any wrongful act of another person, be very careful talking about it online. If that injury may lead to you being involved in a lawsuit, the other side will try to use whatever they can against you, including your social media posts; whether you post about your injury or not. As Lloyd says in this week’s video, it’s probably better to stay off social media all together until you talk to your lawyer about what is and is not appropriate for you to post. If you or a loved one has been injured and you need a lawyer to help you with your next steps, call Gathings Law. We truly care about our clients and will work hard in your best interest
