Deciding to Sue

Personal Injury

Some rights reserved by Impact HubHow do you decide to sue someone? It all depends on the case. Some causes are worth suing for because of moral reasons regardless of the outcome, and we applaud those.

In most cases, however, you need to think of the feasibility of a suit. Things to consider are evidence, cost, likelihood of winning, damages suffered, and amount of award you hope to receive.

This is where a good attorney will be your best ally. He or she will be able to help you discern whether you have a plausible suit, and will explain the toll your type of suit may take on you and your family. Some lawsuits might not require upfront payment, but are based on the outcome. The attorney will be able to explain the differences and the pros and cons. In addition, you will need to be sure that your particular attorney is trustworthy enough to create an agreement for representation in your lawsuit that benefits you both.

Checking out your attorney is important. We recently wrote a post that provides some ideas for how to do that. Online research could be key in researching lawsuits, since some of these attorneys have large reputations and are easy to find online. However, you don’t always need an ostentatious reputation to win a lawsuit.
