Social Networks and Personal Injury Law

Trialtechview.com blogged about social networking sites and child custody cases.   This advice also applies to personal injury law.  I’ve found a lot of information about at-fault drivers on their Myspace pages.  People like to talk.  Young people especially seem to think that they are talking only to their friends.  So, you’ll find a lot of information that is usually only shared in the confines of a locker room or in their high school hallways. 

In short, don’t just have an investigator get statements from witnesses of a collision.  Check out google’s blog search, myspace and facebook for other information.  Also, set up a google alert for any key names or unique information.  You’ll be surprised what you find.  I was!

I don’t want to share too many of my tricks of the trade on this blog.  Give me a call or send an email and I’ll be happy to give some more advice.
