If you have thrown

Life, as we know, is unpredictable. Even the proclaimed and thoughtful decision can not be protected from force majeure. And if the worst happened, it is necessary to prove his innocence in court. A competent lawyer is often able to prove that you deliberately misled. The Supreme Court of Ukraine insists that the courts must proceed from the fact that the consumer, buying property, does not have the specialized knowledge and is not obliged to possess them.
