Insurance companies spend big money every year convincing the public that they’re on their side, but in reality, they’re in business to make big profits. And those big profits aren’t generated by paying victims the money they deserve—instead, they make their money by denying or reducing payments whenever and wherever they can.
If you were recently involved in an auto accident, you may still be dealing with the shock, trauma, and stress of the crash. It’s natural to want to reach out to others to talk about what you’re going through and what lies ahead, but it’s important to remember that the things you say and post online can be used against you by the insurance company if you pursue compensation.
Insurance Companies Look at Victims’ Social Media Accounts
All insurance companies have teams of adjusters whose job is to find ways to dismiss claims or to get victims to accept “lowball” settlements. One method they use to achieve that is to observe claimants’ social media pages and accounts for posts or pictures that are either related to their accidents or that show them partaking in normal activities. They then use those posts as evidence against victims, whether to show that victims were at fault for their injuries or that their injuries aren’t serious enough to deserve compensation.
