How do you know when you need legal advice? Here are some of the issues which might require the advice of a solicitor.

There are many times in life when we come into conflict with others and an issue needs to be resolved. In some cases, it is simple enough to be resolved between the two parties. However, sometimes the issue is so serious and complicated that it requires the help of a legal solicitor to manage the details.

When you hire a solicitor, they will assess your situation and tell you whether or not it will be worth your while to pursue your case. If the solicitor decides that legal action is necessary in your case they will evaluate your situation and explain to you all of your possible options. They will then take any action which is necessary to ensure that all of your rights are fully assessed and protected.

What Situations Will Require the Help of a Solicitor?

Here are some examples of situations that might require the help of a solicitor:

  • You have been in an accident that caused you injury and it was the fault of someone else.
  • When at your job you suffered an accident, due to faulty equipment, poor safety procedures or other neglect on the behalf of your employer.
  • You are going through a divorce, especially if there is a dispute over the custody of the children.
  • You are selling your home or business and you need “conveyancing” services, or the legal details of transferring over property.
  • You have been wrongly dismissed from your job and you have proof that it was because of discrimination on some part by your employer.
  • You are forming your own business and want to have it incorporated.
  • You have an issue with your taxes.
  • While in the hospital for a medical procedure your doctor or surgeon made a mistake that caused you further illness or injury, such as a misdiagnosis, an error in surgery or administering the wrong medication.
  • You are drafting your will to indicate who you would like to have possession of your estate when you pass away.
  • You suffered an injury due to a faulty or dangerous consumer product and you want to claim compensation from the company that manufactured it.
  • You hurt yourself on public property due to poor maintenance or neglect and you want to claim compensation from the owner of the property.
  • A family member has died as a result of someone else’s negligence and you are claiming on their behalf.

These are just a few of the situations where you might require legal aid. If you find yourself dealing with any of these issues, contacting a solicitor will help you determine the proper course of action.
