Facebook Status Used by Dallas Prosecutor To Do What?
OMG, we are all so addicted to our Facebook and Twitter feeds, right?
But today’s article about an Assistant District Attorney so drunk early Saturday morning that she crashed into a tree near her home in East Dallas was especially shocking. Not only because the lawyer paid to prosecute the masses driving while intoxicated was herself guilty of DWI. She then had the nerve to ask the arresting officer to let her off because they were Facebook friends!
Social media is so pervasive that it impacts all areas of the law including the one I specialize in, car wrecks.
Can someone’s use of Facebook hurt their claim for reimbursement of their personal injury damages?
Yes, more than you might imagine.
