How to Sue
Mastering the Art of Suing
Should I Sue My Employer? Should I Sue My Contractor? When Should
If you are thinking about suing somebody, there are three questions to
ask before initiating a lawsuit.
- Do I have a good case? It is usually rather easy
to determine if you have a good case. For each type of lawsuit, the
legal points that you must prove are well defined. Talk to a lawyer
and ask them if they think you have a strong case.
- Is suing my best option? There are many way to resolve
matters outside of the courtroom and avoid unnecessary expense. You
can speak directly with your adversary and try to negotiate a mutually
salutary compromise. Or you can rent a mediator -- a neutral third nobody
who will help you and your adversary to evaluate your goals and options
in order to find a solution which functions for each one. Moreover,
and particularly if your contract envisages him, you can be able to
subject your conflict to the compulsory arbitration.
- What will I gain if I sue and will I be able to collect it?
A judgement is worth nothing if the businesses or the individual you
sued are insolvent, go bankrupt or disappear. If you cannot identify
a reliable source of money for collection, think twice before suing.
