How to Delete Your Social Media Accounts When You Have a Pending Lawsuit

Posted on April 2, 2015

You have a pending personal injury lawsuit from your car accident or slip and fall in Florida, and the stakes are high – for you, your family, and your lawyer working hard on your behalf. You spent hours looking for a good lawyer, and dozens more with his or her team preparing your case.

With all of that in mind, your social media accounts may contain information that can be used by the insurance company against you.  Thus, consider deleting your social media accounts.

Anything You Type or Post Can and Will Be Used Against You

Read this headline three times and repeat it! Anything you type or post can and will be used against you. You can’t get away with playing games with social media when you have a pending lawsuit.  Whatever you put online is discoverable by the insurance company no matter how irrelevant you think it is.

My law firm strongly recommends our clients stay far away from social media during the entire process of a lawsuit. But that’s not all…

How to Delete Your Social Media Accounts

With all due respect to your high school friends and the people you went fishing with in the 70’s, when you have a pending personal injury lawsuit, you do not need anything indexed on Google. And let’s be clear – everything you’ve ever added to Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and MySpace is indexed forever.

But you can minimize the damage by taking a lawyers advice. If you’ve been involved in a car accident or slip and fall accident in Florida, delete your social media accounts. Now!

There are websites that can delete them for you.

Just Delete Me is a directory of links in one place that allow you to delete all of your social media accounts in just a few minutes. Go for it – your lawyer will appreciate it.

Account Killer has easy links to delete your social media accounts.

Go through every social media site in which you’ve entered personal information over the past 20 years, delete them, and free yourself and your legal team from unnecessary problems.

Manually Delete Your Social Media Accounts

The above sites are great, but the only way to 100% verify that your sites are deleted, is to log onto Google+, Facebook, Twitter, and all the rest and manually delete your accounts. We recommend that you use the above sites and manually delete them to ensure your online presence is minimized during the entire process of your lawsuit.

Go to Google+, Facebook, Twitter and other social media sites and manually delete your account. We won’t list the “how to” links here as the social media sites change them all the time – they have an interest in you keeping the sites active.

Peace of Mind

When you’re done – and it may take an hour or two if you’ve been an active social media poster – you will have peace of mind that you aren’t hurting your pending personal injury lawsuit.

Hesitating? Think of the huge risk you are taking with your online presence. Delete them all – you can go back online once it is all over.
