In our experience, many people don’t have a good understanding of when to seek legal counsel. It’s easy to assume that getting a lawyer involved would escalate the situation, but in reality, talking to a lawyer early on can help prevent worse problems later. In this article, our team will go over a few situations in which it’s wise to seek legal counsel.
- You’ve Been Injured – One scenario in which you should talk to a lawyer is if you’ve suffered a personal injury at work or as the result of someone else’s negligence. In many cases, pursuing a personal injury or workers’ compensation case is the best way to get the compensation you deserve.
- You Need Benefits – If you are having trouble getting approved for Social Security or veterans’ benefits, we encourage you to reach out to our attorneys to get legal counsel. Our team members have extensive experience in navigating these systems, and we can work with you to make sure you get the benefits you are owed.
- You’re Buying or Selling a House – A third situation in which to seek legal counsel is when you are pursuing a real estate deal. If you are planning to buy or sell a home or commercial property, we encourage you to talk to a lawyer as soon as possible to have them oversee the negotiation and closing process.
