Social media is an important part of daily life in 2015. Whether you are using it to communicate with friends, voice your opinions or sell something these thoughts, pictures, and ideas form a permanent virtual record. Think before you act and before you post or send information. Once you hit send or post that information is no longer private and can be forwarded or re-tweeted. These words and images are then used by insurance companies to pigeonhole you as a person and minimize your claim. In fact, destroying your pictures and words can prevent you from obtaining a personal injury settlement. Former clients' claims, college acceptances and job applications have been negatively affected by their posts. Don't let this happen to you. To learn more, contact Attorney Sarah Karns & Kerrison.
