Social media web sites such as MySpace, Twitter and Facebook provide interesting opportunities for those who wish to share details about their lives. Anyone who uses these popular sites should be aware that their information is available for public viewing. Unless you have discreet privacy settings on your Facebook account, just about everything you share can be viewed by an outsider. If you have been involved in an Arizona car accident or have recently filed a personal injury claim, what you post on your Facebook or MySpace page can affect your claim.
If you update your Facebook account posting that you were just in a car accident, you may receive many comments asking how you are and if you’ll be okay. This supportive connection is what social media is all about. It is an immediate link between you and all your friends and family. The problem is, the people investigating your crash can see what you post.
Yes. Even you just feel “shaken up” after being rear-ended by a truck, it’s important to be examined by your doctor. Many times patients don’t feel physical symptoms until 12 to 24 hours after the accident takes place – even if a major injury occurred.
If you are feeling pain or discomfort immediately after an accident, it is important to seek medical attention. Many times, patients think the pain will simply go away, or that they can “grin and bear it.”
But injuries might actually get worse if you don’t get immediate medical attention. In such cases, your chances of receiving financial compensation go down the drain since there’s no record of the injury at the time of the accident. Seeing a doctor right away will not only provide a preliminary diagnosis and proper documentation should you pursue a personal injury lawsuit, but it can actually help minimize both pain and future visits to the doctor.
