Legal Help: Getting Hurt on the Street
When you hire a law firm to represent your interests, it's easy to think of your attorney in much the same way you pay any professional you hire. The nature of what a lawyer does, however, doesn't always lend itself to the same relationship as you might have with a roofer, a plumber, or even a doctor. If you're going through a divorce, for example, you can't just go to the law firm and tell them to make the situation go away.

I never gave a lot of thought to needing a lawyer until I was injured while walking down a sidewalk. The accident happened when a biker decided to use the sidewalk instead of the street, and plowed into me as he turned a corner.
