Most people don’t need to work with a lawyer on a regular basis, so it’s hard to know what you are looking for and what to expect. When you find yourself in need of legal help, it’s often because you have been injured, your rights are at risk, you need to protect your interests in a civil matter, or you have suffered some form of financial loss due to someone else’s negligent behavior.
The vast majority of people don’t know what goes on in the legal process following a personal injury, and it’s not unusual for people to have misconceptions and questions. It isn’t necessary for people to know all the legal details, but a lack of knowledge could put your interests at risk.
