Your lawyer will analyze the evidence that was used against you and any possible defenses that could be brought up. The type of law that is being used depends on the exact situation that you are facing, and the type of injury that you sustained in this case. They know exactly the facts, and then they determine whether or not the action is legally justified or wrong. Depending on the severity of your injuries, your lawyer will develop a defense so that you know the steps that you need to take in order to protect yourself from your damages. Your lawyer will also advise you if it is necessary for you to seek financial compensation through a court action.
