This blog is inspired by the many, many folks I encounter on a weekly basis who have “no clue” what their rights are.
If you’re ill, you go to the doctor to get a check-up.
If your car is squeaking, you go to the mechanic.
If your roof is leaking, you call the repair man.
But if you think you are in a legal situation, what do you do? YOU IGNORE IT!
Do NOT ignore it. Go see an attorney. They don’t bite. We’ve already discussed how to determine if you need one (here) and how to find one (here). This is just aimed at the folks on the fence and those choosing to be blissfully ignorant. Not knowing your rights, not knowing the law, and not knowing your options is a bad thing.
There are deadlines, timelines, and statutes of limitation. Memories fail, people forget or misremember, documents get lost, people get lost, and “witnesses” die. Records get erased, deleted and shredded. Bruises and wounds heal, scars fade, and most persons recall times past more fondly (or at least not as bad) than they were.
Get off the fence. Get informed and know your rights.
