A lawsuit doesn’t tap you on the shoulder and tell you it’s on the way. You don’t necessarily know that someone will slip and fall in your front yard or suffer from an injury while living at your rental home. You don’t know if someone is going to suddenly slam on his or her breaks in front of you. A disgruntled employee could file a lawsuit for looking at them incorrectly. They could trip and fall while at your business, or they could allege discrimination for wrongful termination. One lawsuit could far exceed insurance coverage limits and whip you out. With the growing number of lawsuits filed each year, no one is immune from a lawsuit.
Actual lawsuits have been filed for:
- Mistakes of an employee
- Your child’s bad decisions
- Sexual Harassment
- Rear ending a bad driver
- Breach of contract
- Injuries while on your property
- Injuries while at your work
- Your children’s friends hurting themselves with your toys
- Leaving a bad review on Yelp
- Violating a music or art copyright unknowingly
The list of lawsuits goes on and on. Unfortunately, a reality of today’s litigious society is you can be sued for almost anything. Even a frivolous lawsuit can end up costing you thousands of dollars in legal fees just to defend yourself. The goal is to create an Asset Protection Plan that will keep your assets safe from any financial threat. Protecting your assets with the help of an Asset Protection Attorney will limit your exposure and the value of assets to be claimed in a lawsuit. Any attorney who might consider taking a case on contingency fee basis would be much less likely to get involved knowing that there are no significant assets to be collected through a judgement.
Asset Protection is likened to insurance, you need to invest in it before there is a problem. Don’t wait until you are being named in a lawsuit to look into Asset Protection. Call us today for a complimentary preliminary consultation with an experienced Asset Protection Attorney.
