Most personal injury lawyers work on a “contingency fee” basis. That means there are no upfront charges and you owe no fees or costs unless and until a recovery is made on your behalf. If you obtain a judgment or the case settles, your attorney is paid an agreed-upon portion from the settlement.
Falls frequently occur because of hazards and defects associated with steps or uneven surfaces. Homeowners and businesses may be liable if they fail to maintain their stairs, floors, and walkways in good condition or fail to fix or warn about a defect or hazard that they knew about or should have known about.
