Personal Injury Lawyer Dean Weitzman Of Silvers, Langsam & Weitzman, P.C., Presents To PA Paralegal Association
RELEASED: October 17, 2012
(PHILADELPHIA, PA) On Friday, October 19, Philadelphia personal injury lawyer Dean Weitzman of Silvers, Langsam & Weitzman, P.C., – also known as My Philly Lawyer – will present a continuing education seminar to the Pennsylvania Association of Paralegals (PAP) on the influence of social media on litigation and trial strategy.
As social media – such as Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and G+, among others – have seemingly become a part of everyday life, their impact on the courtroom cannot be overlooked. Particularly in Philadelphia personal injury lawsuits, statements made on social media sites that were once thought to be private are now discoverable during litigation.
Managing partner of Silvers, Langsam & Weitzman, P.C., and trial attorney Dean Weitzman will discuss trial strategy and the use of social media in personal injury litigation, including:
- What to expect from defense attorneys and insurance companies who seek access to an injured person’s social media accounts
- What steps a personal injury plaintiff can take to protect their social media accounts during litigation
Weitzman has extensive litigation experience in both state and federal courts in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. He has successfully represented individuals and families whose lives were changed by a medical mistake, motor vehicle or truck accident, a dangerous or defective product or a workplace construction accident.
