Why can't I put pictures on Facebook? The insurance company cannot see my profile because its private. | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

We hear this all the time from clients.  The scary truth is that no matter what setting you have on your Facebook profile, there are ways to see your profile.  The insurance company and other lawyers have the assets and time to devote to scouring the internet for your cyber footprint.  If you have pictures of yourself lifting boxes or at the gym but are claiming to be permanently disabled from a car wreck, you lose a lot of credibility.  In general, it is best to keep some matters private, such as lawsuits and injuries.  Don’t risk your case by doing something foolish.  Keep your thoughts and information about your injury to yourself and your lawyer.
