Following a car crash, it’s natural for you to want to tell others about the accident. If you were injured and are in the process of recovery, it may be especially tempting to let others know how you’re doing. However, the dangers of sharing too much information about your car accident often exceed the benefits, especially in cases where an insurance company adjuster reads your social media posts.
Unfortunately, anything you write online, including content on most social media platforms, can—and most likely will—be used against you by an insurance company when they’re evaluating your claim.
