For the most part, social media is beneficial, as it provides many ways to connect with people, spread awareness and other news. Unfortunately it has also expanded to new levels, making cyberbullying and other mishaps more common.
Here are some tips to protect you against personal injury claims:
- Do not post on social media in anger
- Be cautious with the information you post on social media – would your mother or future employer think your post was acceptable?
- Add Personal Injury Protection to your homeowners policy
- Obtain a Personal Umbrella Policy
Add Personal Injury Protection to your homeowner’s insurance policy and add a Personal umbrella policy. This coverage is not automatically included under the standard homeowner’s insurance policy. This will cover you against personal injury claims such as slander and defamation of character on social media. With personal umbrella insurance, you are covered beyond your other policies’ limits.
