In particular, you can validate the legitimacy of the financial claims made against you. Oftentimes, the financial damages one is pursuing are inflated or otherwise misrepresented. If you suspect the claims against you are overblown, it may be in your best interest to retain the services of a forensic accountant. An accountant can help you analyze those claims to look for errors and discrepancies.
