Liability considerations for audio project use

I hope some of may guide me down the right road on this issue. As I close into the final steps of creating the final soundtrack of my audio project I have been finding concern about liablility in the event that the end user misenterprets the intentions of this audio soundtrack. It is more of an instructional type of soundtrack and although I consider its directive a very positive and even life saving one, I fear that the intent could be misunderstood and cause potential problems. Who or what am I looking for to protect myself in the event that an action was taken against me for reported ham done by use of (misuse) of my soundtrack. Am I looking for a common lawyer? A music lawyer? do I need a lawyer at all? I know there are many kinds of soundtracks created for a number of reasons - instructional, educational, inspirational, and in the world we live in with millions of kinds of poeple, there is "always' the potention for liability regardless of the innocence or positive intentions of anything we produce. I hope someone can guide me to a greater awareness o fwhat I may be dealing with and where to go to find the info I need .

Thank you,
Phil Donovan
