April 2, 2009 - Fox 13 News, Seattle - The Davis Law Group was recently (April 2, 2009) featured on Fox 13 News for the innovative steps that it is taking to strengthen relationships with current and former clients, and business partners through the use of social media tools such as Facebook. The firm has been using social media to keep ‘friends’ up-to-date on legal issues, legislation that impacts the insurance industry, recent settlements and verdicts, and other information that may affect their claim (confidential client information is never shared on online).
Sites like Facebook help Davis Law Group inform ‘friends’ about various legal issues that impact the community while also letting people get to know the DLG team on a more personal level. For most clients, the focus is on their injuries and how they affect their lives. There may be insufficient time or opportunity for clients to really get to know Chris, Mischelle, or other DLG staff members learn about their lives, families, interests and activities. Through social media the clients can now get a whole picture of the people who work on their case...both personally as well as professionally.
If you are “on Facebook” you may want to become a fan of one of our Facebook ‘pages’ and a member of one of our groups. Search for “Davis Law Group” or for one of Chris’ books such as The Ten Biggest Mistakes That Can Wreck Your Washington Accident Case, When The Dog Bites, or Little Kids; Big Accidents.
If you have been injured in an accident and are seeking compensation from the responsible party you must be mindful of how others may perceive even the most innocent and seemingly irrelevant information on your social networking pages/profiles. Insurance companies are experts at taking a few of these little bits of information and twisting them to make it seem as though you are/were not injured, etc. The Davis Law Group asks our injured clients not to make their lives an online open book until the conclusion of their case. Injured victims should pay close attention to what is included on these sites. This includes not only their own profiles, but also information about them which may appear on friends and family members' profiles as well (tagged photos).
