The Impact of Social Media On Personal Injury Cases

Use of social media in personal injury lawsuitsIf you have suffered or taken any injuries in personal cases, social media can be used effectively to provide evidence of these injuries. Because social media has become a critical part of our daily lives, it allows us to share our thoughts, experiences, and, more importantly, our injuries with a broad audience. In personal injury cases, social media platforms such as Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, TikTok, and even Snapchat can significantly impact the outcome of your lawsuit and future legal proceedings.

One of the most common ways social media is used in personal injury cases is during discovery. Discovery is the process where both parties involved in a lawsuit gather information and evidence from one another to strengthen their case. This commonly includes requesting documents and gathering information from social media accounts and posts.

PA Governor Signs New Child Car Seat Law

Updated April 2024
Over the past few years, Pennsylvania has changed many of its laws about using child seats. In June 2016, then Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf signed legislation requiring all children under 2 years of age to ride in rear-facing child car seats in the vehicle’s back seat.

The previous law stated only that all children under 4 years of age must be restrained in a safety seat – it did not specify rear or front-facing, and did not state that children that young must ride in the back seat.

The law has been updated to match the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s guidelines. According to the updated law, children under the age of 8, less than 57 inches tall, or less than 80 pounds, are required to be placed in a car or booster seat as approved by the U.S. […]

A plethora of complications from traumatic brain injuries, ranging from minor cognitive delays to debilitating and life-threatening symptoms such as seizures and coma, can follow the victim for years after the injury.

What is Strict Liability Law?

How Does Strict Liability Affect My Personal Injury Claim?

There are many personal injury cases that benefit from the strict liability law doctrine, also known as liability law. When the strict liability law doctrine is applicable, victims can seek out a personal injury claim without the emotionally exhausting task of establishing the responsible person(s) or company‘s proof of negligence, intention, or carelessness. Strict liability law only demands the evidence that shows harm or danger was inflicted upon the party seeking compensation, and that the accused committed it.
