Social Media and Workers’ Compensation Claims – a Bad Combination!

Would you be surprised if I told you that those photos you uploaded to Facebook, or that video of your child’s basketball game now playing on YouTube, or even your restaurant “check-in” on Yelp could cost you thousands of dollars and seriously undermine your workers’ compensation case? Unfortunately all of these things have happened to men and women pursuing work injury claims in Georgia.

If you did not realize this already, understand that privacy in the United States is pretty much dead. If you participate in social media like:

• Facebook

• My Space

• Yelp

• Tumblr

• Wordress (blogging)

• Blogger

• Pinterest

• YouTube

• Twitter

• and many more
