The legal system and social media are becoming ever more integrated with each other in all sorts of lawsuits, including those involving personal injuries and negligence. The thing to remember with social media sites is they are public forums.
This means anything you post online on social media is now public knowledge. As such, your posts can be used against you by the defendant and his or her lawyer. Their objective is to take your posts and pull them apart to show inconsistencies between your claim of injuries and how those are currently impacting your life.
