If you are accused causing injury to someone as a result of an action, comment, or posting, or you are a victim seek legal advice promptly. Persons who have suffered harm owing to the action or inaction of another can sue for damages. You may be forced to pay a considerable amount of money if the injured party can prove that you are responsible for related harm they have suffered. If you have been injured, bullied, or victimized in another way you may be entitled to court orders to protect you or compensate you. Craig Annin & Baxter can identify the actions, defenses, and the risks whether you have been harmed or have harmed someone else.
Mistaken and False Claims
Your involvement in a lawsuit may owe to mistaken identity. If the person was injured on a property or in some other space accessible by the public, they may have erroneously identified you as the owner and thus as the liable party. The lawyer you hired can easily clear up this mistake and get you off the hook for the accident.
You must also protect yourself against a more sinister form of litigation. The person may file a lawsuit that is based on a false claim of injury. If, for example, you were in a car accident and the other driver was injured, you should take the incident seriously. However, if the photos you took of the damaged vehicles and the driver just after the accident are inconsistent with the claims they make in the lawsuit, then you should have your lawyer investigate.
