Social media can help you build your insurance defense

On Behalf of | Mar 15, 2024 | Insurance Law |

Your insurance company can’t afford to payout every claim filed. If you did, then your business would quickly go under, thereby preventing your from providing services to those customers who need you. So, when you’re facing an especially large claim, you need to do everything in your power to protect your business and your interests. That’s not to say that you can wrongly deny a valid claim, but you should be diligent in seeking out justifications for legitimately denying a claim or paying less than what the claim seeks to recover.

How social media might play a role in your insurance defense

People often say more than they intend to. This is especially true when they turn to social media. That’s why this should be one of your first stops when building your insurance defense. By looking at the claimant’s social media pages, you might discover the following:

  • That their injuries are non-existent or are far less severe than they claim.
  • That the claimant hasn’t sought out adequate medical treatment.
  • That the monetary damages claimed have been exaggerated.
  • That the claimant has accepted some level of fault for the incident in question.

Even if you don’t have direct access to the claimant’s social media page, you might be able to find their posts by scouring their friends’ social media pages that are less restrictive. By being as thorough as possible here, you could uncover information that’s critical to the outcome of your case.
