Casey Anthony Social Media Strategy

This story highlights how Casey Anthony's lawyers used a consultant to review more than 40,000 strong opinions on social media forums to craft their trial strategy.

In other words, just in case you didn't realize it, EVERYONE WATCHES WHAT YOU DO ON FACEBOOK AND THAT IS NOT ALWAYS A GOOD THING!

As our office always reminds our clients, social media forums, like Facebook, Twitter, and the like CAN POTENTIALLY BE USED AGAINST YOU IN YOUR CASE!

Many people think that what they say on Facebook, for example, has nothing to do with their personal injury or workers' compensation case. Nothing could be further from the truth.

The famous quotation by Shakespeare that "All the world's a stage," is as true now as it was over 500 years ago. Everyone is watching everything you do, say, and the photos and videos you post. Nothing hurts a claim of injury worse than a photos of you jumping on a trampoline, behaving drunkenly, or changing a tire on your car despite your back injury.

This Casey Anthony trial strategy story just highlights what many of us already know-be careful with what you say, post, and do on social media forums.

If you have an injury case, it is pretty obvious the defense is looking at it closely. Consider yourself warned.
