Let’s be clear about one thing – workers’ compensation insurance companies do not make money by paying out on claims. They make money by collecting premiums and investing that money. The more they have to pay out, the smaller their profit margin will be.
One of the tools at their disposal to deny claims is social media. The same social media that you post so family members and friends can stay in touch with you, insurance companies can monitor. Pictures you post on Facebook can be seen by others unless you change your settings. Please change your privacy settings so only friends can see your photos. Also, don’t accept friend requests from strangers and most importantly, refrain from discussing your claim on any social media outlet. Insurance companies can use social media against you, so be careful.
