If you have suffered an injury through no fault of your own in Queensland, you may be eligible to claim compensation for your losses. When beginning the claims process, it’s important to know what could be held against you. Did you know that your social media account(s) could impact the success of your claim?

What To Know About The Role Of Social Media In Your Claim

Most people in today’s society will have at least one social media account. Social Media could be used by Insurers as a tool to investigate the credibility of your claim.

Credibility can be a very important aspect in ensuring claim success. Your social media profile may impact the way that insurance companies assess your credibility.

The Impacts of Social Media

If you are pursuing a claim because an injury has left you with pain and disability – you should be wary of what you are posting on social media.

Posts that contradict any alleged disability may cause an insurer to question the severity and genuineness of your current state.

Posts made by friends and family may also be used against you.

Moving Forward

Suffering an injury through no fault of your own can be a harrowing ordeal. And for many, social media is an outlet for self-expression during a difficult time.

But it pays to be mindful of what you post because it may impact the way your claim is assessed.

How To Handle the Complexities and Legalities of the Claims Process

Handling the claims process alone can be overwhelming. Your road to recovery and rehabilitation is most important, so it’s essential to find avenues that allow you to pursue a claim correctly and achieve adequate rest and recovery at the same time. How can you do this? Through legal support.
