The Challenges of Using Social Media in Workers' Compensation Claims

Find out how to effectively and legally use social media as evidence in workers' compensation claims.

You will benefit from this topic by learning about the number of procedural, ethics, and evidentiary issues that can impact obtaining and using social media as evidence in workers' compensation cases. More and more people use social media to document and exhibit their behaviors, and to communicate their thoughts, opinions, and beliefs in text format, and through photos and videos. Given the number of legal and ethical issues that arise when procuring and using such evidence, you will obtain an advantage in your practice by becoming familiar with the issues that arise in this area of the law. There will be a discussion of social media practices that other attorneys have used that have either enhanced or harmed their cases or their legal practices. The materials and discussion will help you undertake the process of creating your own customized case preparation processes and techniques for using social media evidence in workers' compensation cases.
