When getting free legal advice for a car accident, bike collision or pedestrian injury in social media the best lawyers will make it clear if and when you have to start paying legal fees. I have been a personal injury lawyer in British Columbia since 1995 and I have written often about how personal injury lawyers are paid in BC and How to hire a personal injury lawyer . Social media is no different in that legal advice should only be sought from a qualified lawyer. There are many opinions people will offer in good faith but if you are an injury claimant seeking help, unqualified advice can be confusing and misleading. Car accident injury claims will require much more than a social media site can offer.
The Insurance Corporation of British Columbia, ICBC, has had more of a presence in social media due to the growing use of this medium of communication. What once was a care free environment has now become a feeding ground for appraisal and assessment of personal injury claimants. All of the top social media sites flourish on the exchange of personal information.
Bottom line is to talk to a real personal injury lawyer on the phone and go in for a free face-to-face legal consultation. Personal injury law changes almost every day as new cases are released, some overturned, and legislation is created, repealed and amended.

Rules are chances day by day and if the claim could be done with the help of social media than it have some privacy between the lawyer and the consumer which cannot be disclosed so the use of social media could be effective. Thank you for sharing.

Jacqueline Small is diligent, professional, and compassionate. She went above and beyond when I was injured in a motor vehicle accident. Anytime I had questions she would respond quickly and always seemed to be one step ahead. I called several accident law firms and none were as knowledgeable and sincere as Jacqueline. Highly recommended!
I would totally recommend this law group. Renn handled my case with the utmost professionalism kept me informed throughout and explained in easy to understand layman's terms. I am very happy with how things worked out. I would highly recommend if you ever need a lawyer to contact him. Great job and a big thank you to all.
Over a period of 4 years Jacqueline Small guided me throughout the entirety of my personal injury claim after a motor vehicle accident left me with chronic pain. My experience was pleasant, professional, thorough, and communication was always open. I was treated with care like a person and not just a case. Jacqueline was with me every step of the way until we reached a settlement with the insurance company. 10/10 I would recommend to any friends or family.
