 Use of Meta platforms including Instagram and Facebook harms to your teen.

Michigan – September 24, 2022

Because social media is a big deal for teenagers in the U.S., and nearly all teenagers have used at least one social media platform, such as Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, or Snapchat, certain safety precautions must be discussed to decrease the harms reported that include serious life-threatening mental health issues.  Cyberbullies and pedophiles are one sector of danger, but frequent content searching involving sex, drugs, violence, or body perfecting has become a danger to the health of teens across the United States.

At risk for lifelong harms.

Facebook and Instagram have caused many young people to develop severe injuries, including eating disorders, body dysmorphia, depression, and repeated periods of suicidal ideation, among other things.  Individuals who have experienced any harmful effects of the use of Meta platforms should seek legal counsel to see if they have a case for compensation to address their harms.

Addictive behavior.

Individuals and families who are suffering through mental health issues caused by social media addiction or those who have lost a loved one through suicide due to a negative social media interaction should contact experienced Michigan personal injury lawyers to discuss their concerns and see if they have a case for damages against Facebook, Instagram or other social media platforms.

Victim criteria to take legal action.

To build a case against social media platforms such as META the parent company of Instagram, the victim must have used on or both of Facebook or Instagram, began use before the age of 21, utilizes the platforms for more than 3 hours per day and suffered or suffers from various behavioral health issues including ADD, ADHD, depression and anxiety, and body dysmorphic illness including anorexia and bulimia, but the worst of is suicidal ideation or the act itself. Lawsuits against dangerous content on social media may be based on improper or non-existent warnings to the dangers posed by their use.  Depending on the physical and mental harms suffered by your teen, it may be prudent to consult with a Michigan Facebook lawsuit attorney at the Neumann Law Group who can explain when legal action is warranted.
