Are your social networking profiles visible to all?
Not always, but you should always keep in mind that whatever you post on the internet could be seen by others. You can change your profile settings to be private, but depending on your settings, things such as profile pictures can sometimes remain visible to strangers. Personal injury lawyers will use anything they can as evidence and present it as a proof against you.

Some solutions you need to practice when it comes to social media.
Therefore, you need to be careful about what you post online, especially after you have had an accident/injury. Compensation lawyers will be on the hunt for any data against you, to prove you wrong and get your personal injury claim cancelled. You have to be aware of what you are posting, or what your friends and family might be posting about you. The best way to avoid such tricky situations is to set your account to the most private setting available and refrain from posting anything that could be used against you online. If you really want to be on the safe side, just deactivate all your social media accounts for a temporary period.
