Smart, Tough, No-Nonsense, Effective
When you experience a legal injury, sometimes you have to go to court. A legal injury can occur when something goes wrong with an agreement. It can also occur when someone is careless or intentionally violates your rights. If you suffer a legal injury–or if someone accuses you of inflicting a legal injury, you will need experienced help.
There are many different situations that give rise to civil litigation. Negligence, breach of contract, defamation, invasion of privacy, assault, breach of warranty, employment disputes, automobile accidents all can be the basis for a civil lawsuit. There are many other causes. Civil lawsuits sometimes lack the drama of criminal cases or divorces, but they can have just as big an impact on the lives of the parties.
These cases usually involve three separate phases:
- 1. Factual and legal investigation;
- 2. Filing and pre-trial preparation; and
- 3. Trial.
If you believe you are the injured party, your lawyer must first figure out if the facts support a legal claim. Who did what to whom? Does the law create a remedy? How much can be recovered and does someone have the ability to pay a judgment? Call an experienced and dedicated attorney today to help you answer those questions. Call Jerry S. Scheff at 979-865-3198
