A MSB lawsuit is a civil action that is brought against a business for, usually, breach of contract or negligence. If you are the victim of such an act then your immediate concern would be to get in touch with a reputable lawyer, who may assist you in making a prompt and proper complaint against the offender. However, what if there was no way of determining whether or not a company or person engaged in such conduct? In such cases the onus upon you is to carry out your own due diligence as to the credibility of the complaint filed against you.
There are a couple of ways through which you can do this.
You can choose to make a “cold” call to the attorney’s office, which means that you will call them without prior notice or information. This may not prove fruitful. The reason being is that the mere act of calling without any prior notice is itself considered as an improper tactic by attorneys and law enforcement personnel, who may well be very well informed that you have filed a case, as a result of which they have made the necessary follow-ups.
Alternatively, you could talk to someone at the office or any of the concerned officers.
However, it is advisable to talk only to the concerned officers and not to anyone else who may have a motive to tarnish your case in any possible way. You can do this by making use of your favorite search engine, which will provide you with a list of legal professionals, including Attorneys, whom you can approach for assistance. After identifying at least three professionals who are, or who at least appear to be, attorneys, you could make contact with them, either by telephoning or by leaving a message on their office phone.
As discussed earlier, the very first step that you must take is to fill up a complaint/complaint form that will be provided to you by the Attorney.
You can do this at your earliest convenience after you have been advised to do so by the concerned officials. The next step would be to visit the office of the Attorney. You will need to provide him or her with the case number, along with all the relevant details, so that the entire process can be conducted as quickly as possible. The Attorney will then review your complaint and, based on it, draw his or her own opinion about the case, and whether or not you have a valid case to proceed with.
Once the Attorney has to draw his or her opinion, you will need to submit it along with a case number.
The next step would be for you to make another visit to the Attorney’s office. Here, you will again need to provide the same case number and you will be required to give a comprehensive description of your case. The Attorney will then complete the complaint/complaint form. Once he or she is done, you can expect a response from the Attorney within about two weeks.
This process could take anywhere from a couple of months to a year, depending on the nature of the case.
If you file a Class Action lawsuit, it could take substantially longer. Also, if your case is resolved in a hurry, by the time you are due to file your lawsuit, the other side may have already moved on and completed their settlement.
