Negligence is defined as failing to act with the duty of care toward another that a reasonable person would have taken in the same situation. Failing to act on behalf of another in certain circumstances also can be negligence.
If you think you have been harmed because of someone else's negligence, you should talk to A Menoken lawyer who handles negligence cases. The lawyer can evaluate the action, or lack of action, under the law and determine if you are entitled to compensation. The lawyer can help you sue for damages and may be able to reach a settlement.
In legal practice, experience matters. An experienced attorney will likely have handled issues similar to yours many, many times. Therefore, after listening to your situation, the attorney should have a reasonable idea of the time line for a case like yours and the likely resolution.
An experienced lawyer should be able to communicate a basic "road map" on how to proceed. The lawyer should be able to walk you through the anticipated process, key considerations, and potential pitfalls to avoid. Once you've laid out the facts of your situation to the lawyer, he/she should be able to frame expectations and likely scenarios to help you understand your legal issue.
