When you are in business, it is entirely likely you will at some point face litigation. It is worth knowing what sorts of litigation you could face.
One possibility is that you could face product liability litigation. That is, a product you make could malfunction and injure someone, or not work as promised. In that case, the user of the product may sue you for the failure of the product to work as promised (or for the injuries sustained.)
Another type of lawsuit you could face is premises liability. This often arises from a situation wherein someone at your place of business — employee or otherwise — is injured, perhaps slipping and falling or in some other way.
You may have a lawsuit resulting from your discharge of an employee. Wrongful termination, retaliation, or harassment could all be alleged against you.
It is, of course, important to have an attorney on hand when you encounter situations such as these. However, it is also a good idea to speak with an attorney before these problems arise, to discuss how you might avoid “litigation traps.” Meek Law Firm can advise you in both how to avoid, and how to deal with, lawsuits like these and more.
