Defamation is when someone states or writes a false statement about an individual or business.  A person or business can be severely damaged as a result of another’s defamatory statement.  This is especially true when defamatory statements are made on social media websites such as Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.

Damages are presumed when the false statement claims that a person was involved in an infamous crime, the person has an infectious disease, subjects one to hatred, distrust or ridicule, or tends to damage a person or company’s trade or profession. Numerous defenses exist in defamation claims.
