Slip and Fall Injuries in Montana
Real estate owners and tenants have an obligation to keep their property free of obstacles and impediments that might injure visitors. That means grocery stores need to clean up spilled food promptly, you should shovel snow-covered sidewalks and offices must make sure that stairs are well maintained. If you've been injured in a trip or slip and fall accident on someone else's property, you may be entitled to money for your injuries. Talk to a Montana slip and fall attorney as soon as possible to learn whether you have a viable case.
How Much Do Slip & Fall Attorneys Cost in Montana?
If you're unable to work because of your injuries or have spent a lot of money on doctor's fees, you may be wondering how much you'll have to pay a slip and fall lawyer. That's a fair question.
Attorneys who represent slip and fall accident victims are also known as personal injury lawyers. Most Montana personal injury attorneys charge their clients a contingency fee.
When you hire a lawyer on contingency, you only pay legal fees if the lawyer successfully collects money from the person or company responsible for your injury. (In the case of a slip and fall accident, the responsible party is usually the property owner or tenant.)
The advantage of a contingency fee is that you won't tie up your hard-earned cash while the case is in progress. The disadvantage is that most Montana slip and fall lawyers will only accept you as a client if they think your case is likely to be successful.
Find & Hire Local Montana Personal Injury Lawyers
In Montana, you have three years from the date of your injury to file a personal injury lawsuit against the responsible party. (This time limit is known as the statute of limitations.) But lawsuits take time to prepare and three years can pass quickly, which means you should hire a Montana personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after your accident.
