- Physicians assistants
These are only a few examples, but you could be at risk if you have a professional license. Having license insurance and knowing what to do if someone sues you for your professional license is crucial. Read on to learn more.
Tip # 1: Gather all of the evidence that you can.
This includes any emails, text messages, or other communications that you have with the person who is suing you. Getting character witnesses who can testify to your good character is also essential.
Tip # 2: Be prepared to go to trial.
The majority of cases are settled out of court, but you should be prepared to go to trial if necessary. This means being honest with your attorney about your case and being ready to testify in court.
Tip # 3 -Stay calm and collected.
This is easier said than done, but it is important to remember that losing your cool will only worsen your situation. If you are calm and collected, you will be able to think more clearly and make better decisions. Please do not reach out to the person suing you or talk to them about the case, as this can only worsen things.
