Dangers of Revealing Too Much Information on Facebook While On Workers' Compensation Benefits

Everyone is entitled to a social life and a social networking life.  However, people collecting workers' compensation benefits are held to a different standard when it comes to postings.  Workers' Compensation Insurance Carriers will do anything to discredit your name to gain an advantage in your workers' compensation case.  The best recommendation I can give you is to take a break from posting stuff on Twitter, Facebook, MySpace etc if it involves anything that has to do with your daily activities or personal life. Private investigators work around the clock to lure you into saying or doing something your not supposed to.  Remember, you can't tell who someone is when they are typing on a keyboard from an undisclosed location.  I don't want you to be paranoid, I just want you to be very careful.  We have had several client's lose their cases because of stupid comments on Facebook and Twitter.  Here are some examples of bad postings:

Real Examples:

  • "I'm livin the life baby....... Cashing checks and frontin on honeys.  
  • "My wife, kids and I took a trip to see my cousin in Virginia.  The drive killed my back.  Nine hours in a car."
  • "Watched sick new movie, Super, got so baked."
