At some point in our lives we will realize the only way to right a wrong is to file a lawsuit. Perhaps you have a dispute with another, a disagreement over a contract, or want to prevent others from going through a similar experience as you. Many sleepless nights and careful consideration can go into deciding to file a lawsuit. For many filing a lawsuit is a last resort after all other avenues have been exhausted. Many times filing a lawsuit is the only way to seek retribution.
Although filing a lawsuit may seem like a complicated daunting task, it is just the type of task an experienced attorney can handle. The attorney must ensure that you have legal merit to your claim that would entitle you to any recovery from the other side. Some attorneys will take almost any case and blindly file the lawsuit without adequate legal research. Frivolous lawsuits can end up costing you thousands of dollars and thus you must ensure legal merit to your claim.
I always tell my clients that we will go over the pros and cons of your case, and ensure you understand what lies ahead. In deciding whether to file a lawsuit one consideration is whether the side you want to file a lawsuit against has any money or assets to pay any money the judge orders. Finally, many states restrict the amount of time you have to file a lawsuit after the incident. This is known as a statute of limitations and can potentially forever bar you from bringing your claim in court so you can’t sleep on your rights.
If you have a good case and the law is on your side, you will most likely end up with the result you are looking for, especially if you have an experienced attorney handling your dispute.
