Do I Really Need A Lawyer?Written on September 26, 2014
Are you facing a tough situation, or been involved in an incident, and asked yourself if you need an attorney? That’s not an uncommon question. You may think you can handle things on your own, or with the advice of friends, without contacting an attorney. You may also think that legal bills associated with your case or situation may be too costly and not worth it.
The answer to those questions is simple. If you think you might need an attorney, you probably do. Whether it’s a civil or criminal matter, an experienced attorney is an invaluable asset to have on your side. The attorneys at The Silverbach Group have the experience to protect you no matter what the situation you are facing.
Listed below are a few examples of why having legal counsel in your corner is so important:
Criminal charges: Any criminal charge should be taken seriously. Even simple misdemeanors, if you are convicted or plead guilty, can have dire consequences. Any sort of criminal record can adversely affect your driver’s license, employment, finances and freedom.
Car accidents: If you have had a car accident, chances are you have had to deal with an insurance company. Whether discussing a settlement to repair your vehicle, or being reimbursed for medical bills, working with an insurance company is never fun. It’s important to remember that insurance companies, and their representatives, are in the business of making money. It’s never a good idea to try and get a fair settlement on your own.
Slip and fall: Accidents in retail businesses happen all of the time. Whether it’s a wet spot on the floor, or a safety hazard left behind by an employee, the company will most likely want to make you a quick offer. Just like insurance companies, retail businesses aren’t in the habit of just handing over large sums of money. A quick offer may be a preemptive move to keep you from being fairly compensated for your injuries, medical bills and lost wages. If you have been hurt in a store, or on someone else’s property, contact The Silverbach Group immediately.
Civil matters: Most civil matters require a court appearance. This can include divorces, lawsuits and child support hearings. Whether you are the plaintiff or defendant, the court system can be difficult to navigate on your own. An attorney can assist you in filing the correct papers and presenting your case to the judge in the best possible way. Don’t take a chance and go it alone.
It’s important to have an experienced attorney working for you no matter what the legal situation is that you are in. If you are in need of legal consultation or assistance, call The Silverbach Group today. You can reach us at 770-635-0334.
