We live in an age where we are increasingly involved with social media: Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, LinkedIn, to name but a few sites. While these sites have their appeals, they can damage a plaintiffs personal injury claim significantly.-Recently, a Pennsylvania judge ruled that information from social networking sites is discoverable in civil cases, meaning that your personal information can be produced as evidence in the courtroom.
For example, if you are alleging specific injuries, and your social media page does not reflect that you are suffering from the same, it could provide grounds for a compelling argument from the defense.
