Most people only have a vague understanding of the details of law. And that means when they end up in any sort of lawsuit, things can go awry quickly. And depending on the basic financial status of the people involved, there can be a discrepancy in the quality of prosecution and defense, as well as that information void sitting in the middle.
So, some topics that everyone should be aware of before they get too involved in any court case might be things like understanding what structured settlements are, how lawyer’s costs factor in, the difference between civil and criminal trials, how long court cases typically last, and how juries work. All of this information is pretty easily obtainable, but still important to know.
