Legal Tips

Social Media Warning

A REMINDER: Don’t Let Your Social Media Accounts Kill Your Case!

As your case progresses, your Facebook, Snapchat, TikTok, Instagram, Twitter and all other social media platforms can seriously harm your ability to get the personal injury settlement you deserve. Here’s how…

The lawyer defending your case will definitely Google you and look for any information they can use against you online. These days people are posting just about everything that happens in a day on social media. So, if you’re on a hike giving your son a piggyback ride, out dancing with your friends at the club or finally getting around to building that back deck, then maybe you aren’t as hurt as your lawyer is claiming.

No matter how good you are at knowing who can see your account(s), there’s someone out there who is smarter and maybe even hired by an insurance company to track you online. So be smart, just stay OFF social media until your case is settled.

That means telling anyone you’re spending time with that you don’t want photos of you posted online no matter what. The most innocent moment can be twisted enough to cause just enough doubt in the minds of everyone involved. Again, take the safe road and just don’t post it online!

Veterans Only NeighborhoodDouglasville’s Veterans Only Neighborhood Will Be Complete October 1st

In Douglasville’s all veteran neighborhood, Veterans Place, Habitat for Humanity of Metro Atlanta recently started construction on the eighth and final home in the neighborhood.

Lisa Montgomery is the final homeowner, a partially disabled, retired member of the Navy. Lisa’s home is scheduled to be finished on October 1st. Joining her in her new home will be her 10-year-old daughter, Serenity, and a 23-year-old son, Jawan.

When asked about the home Lisa said, “Building a Habitat home for me and my family would mean the world to me. I grew up in the foster care system, so I never had a permanent place to call home.”

This property is situated on four acres that NW Metro Atlanta Habitat purchased from Douglas County Housing Authority in 2016. There are 1,300 Habitat for Humanity affiliates in the country, but this is only the second all-veteran community.

“We built this rare neighborhood on Military Way to serve those who have served and create a true community for Veterans and their families,” says Jessica Gill, Habitat for Humanity, NW Metro Atlanta CEO.
