The law and the system of law in the United States are a rich and extremely complicate package of agreements that make our civilization as civil as it can be. We agree that we need to have laws and it is relatively safe to say that we mostly agree with what the laws are and what they should be.
In most cases, at least, we have agreed to abide by them, as a general rule. Sometimes, people want to go around the law or bypass the law altogether in order to get what it is they want. This type of behavior is most often seen in the world of contract law. Contract law services that help a party do something nefarious as well as contract law services that seek to defend the rights of those who are marginalized each take a side of the law and try to make it work for them.
On both sides of the fence, you will see a business attorney or an eviction attorney taking a stand on different sides of contract law, hoping to win a case for their client. In terms of business law, a contract is an agreement between two or more parties that binds them each to a set of duties in one form or another. Often, there are stipulations and agreements within the agreements. This is why contract law services become so very important to both parties involved in a contractual agreement.
Here are three reasons you want a contract lawyer in your life.
1.) Real estate agreements.
Take landlords and the tenants they rent properties to. In the state of Nevada, for example, landlords are allowed to charge up to three month’s rent for a security deposit. That is awfully hefty, you might say. But that is the law of the land. At the same time, tenants can sue a landlord in court for up to $7,000 worth of security deposit fees. You need a real estate attorney to know the ins and outs of those contracts.
2.) You need protection at work.
People slip and fall at work. It happens. People also do not slip and fall at work but claim they did slip and fall at work and try to file a workman’s compensation claim. The people who make bad decisions and try to get away with stuff they should never get away will are ruining the system for the legitimate claims.
That said, if you do have an accident at work, your employer is still going to likely bring in the legal team to sort things out. You need to have a lawyer who knows contract law services like the back of her hand to guide you through the process of getting your life sorted.
3.) You need to know what you are entitled to at work.
This is more than just a case of knowing what to do in case of an accident and how to fill out workmen’s compensation forms. This is about knowing what the laws of the land are and whether or not your employer is giving you all that you are entitled to.
For example, the Family Law and Medical Leave Act sets forth the parameters for being away from work. The act gives every worker 12 weeks of unpaid leave to an employee for family reasons. You might not know this law even exists. That is why you need a good lawyer on your side.
