What is social media surveillance in a personal injury case? | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

In today’s society, millions and millions of people post all kinds of personal information on their social media pages. Photographs, check-ins, statuses all show up on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and more. But an insurance company can use all of your social media posts against you in order to try to prove your claim is invalid. Even if you have all of your accounts set to private, the insurance company can file a motion with the courts to have you turn over this information as evidence.
