In the age of technology, injured workers need to be cognizant of the ramifications of social networking sites. However, many injured workers, while actively participating on various social networking sites, do not think much of it.
A recent blog provides examples as to why injured workers’ must be cognizant of their activities/posts on these sites. While the blogger recommends that injured workers consider deactivating their social network accounts during the pendency of their case, I don’t know that going to that extreme is warranted. Simply being mindful of the comments, activities, and photographs you post should suffice. As the blogger points out, you never know who may be viewing your posts!
