Social media has provided us with many avenues to stay connected like never before but it has also proven that it’s harder to erase those moments in our lives that we would rather forget and move on from. With social media more people than ever have instant access to what is going on around world.
Have you been involved in a Louisville accident with your vehicle? Have pictures of the Louisville accident scene been posted on Facebook or other social media websites? How about having the entire accident from start to finish show up on Facebook or YouTube in video form?
It is becoming more common to find these scenarios and scenes on Facebook and other social media sites. However, many people do not realize the legal implications posting pictures of a Louisville accident may have on innocent bystanders. For example, if you post pictures of a crash scene or of an accident in progress to Facebook a legal hold may be placed on the electronic documents. According to Wikipedia, “A legal hold is a process which an organization uses to preserve all forms of relevant information when litigation is reasonably anticipated.” This means you will be forbidden from removing the photos or documents from your Facebook page.
When it comes to reenacting the Louisville accident scene, deciding whom the liable party is, or having appropriate material for the defense of your Louisville accident electronic documents are a very important piece of the puzzle.
Ensure you are receiving the correct advice in your particular Louisville accident case before deleting or having evidence deleted from Facebook. This can be a costly mistake!
