Slip and Fall Injuries in Hawaii
If you've been injured in a slip and fall accident on someone else's property, you may be entitled to money to pay for your medical expenses, damaged or destroyed clothing, lost wages, pain and suffering. A Hawaii slip and fall attorney can help you negotiate a settlement with the property owner or file a personal injury lawsuit to help you collect the compensation you deserve.
How Much Does a Hawaii Personal Injury Lawyer Cost?
A slip and fall lawyer practices what's known as personal injury law, and like most personal injury lawyers, Hawaii slip and fall attorneys generally charge their clients a contingency fee.
When you hire a Hawaii personal injury attorney on contingency, you pay no legal fees at the outset or while your case is in progress. Instead, the attorney is paid at the case's conclusion—and is only paid if you recover money from the property owner.
Most personal injury lawyers charge their clients a percentage of any money that's recovered, plus reimbursement for any legal expenses incurred while preparing the case. The advantage of a contingency fee is that you're not spending your hard-earned money on legal fees when you might need it to pay for doctor's bills or cover other expenses while you're unable to work because of your injuries.
