Indiana Defamation Attorneys

One of things that make the United States great is the freedom of speech guaranteed by the First Amendment. We have a right to review, post, comment, web site, Facebook post or comment, Twitter tweet or other on-line statement. If you are being wrongfully accused of internet defamation, you need a lawyer who specializes in internet defamation legal matters to understand what it will take and what it will cost to defend your case.

In many ways, courts treat defamation on the internet similar to off-line defamation. Because internet defamation is by definition written rather than oral, it is technically internet libel. Libel is Defamation which is written such as on a web site. Most on-line defamation occurs through libel by posting on Yelp, Twitter, Google Plus, and Facebook, website comment, bulletin board post, business review, rating or blog post.

When someone makes a false statement that causes financial or emotional harm to another person it is legally referred to as defamation. Damages to the reputation of an individual or mental health is considered harm. If someone has accused you of crime ruining your reputation and professional status, it is considered to be defamation. You should seek recovery and compensation for the losses you've experienced.

Whether the defamatory statement was spoken or written out, it is taken seriously. When someone posts defamatory statements online, it is considered internet defamation. Under Indiana Constitution, you have the right to protect your reputation.
