Do I Need a Lawyer?
Personal injury attorneys are uniquely qualified to handle premises liability cases, such as elevator and escalator accidents. Insurance companies work overtime to minimize the amount of money they will have to pay for harm caused by their clients’ failure to adhere to building code requirements and properly maintain their equipment. They sometimes use deceitful tactics because they don’t want to compensate injured people, and people without legal representation often fall prey to their tricks.
Personal injury attorneys are familiar with insurance company tricks and can stand up for your rights as a victim. Furthermore, personal injury lawyers are familiar with the complicated aspects of premises liability law. They will be able to investigate your accident, gather the necessary evidence, and make compelling arguments on your behalf, all while you focus on recovering from your injuries. With a lawyer’s help, you are likely to receive far more compensation than you would on your own.

Frequently Asked Questions
Premises liability is a complex area of the law, and our clients usually have many questions about their cases. The following are the answers to some of the questions we hear most frequently at our firm.
How much does it cost to hire your firm?
Initially, it costs you nothing. We only get paid if we win you compensation for your injuries. In the unlikely event that we are unable to win you any money, you won’t owe us anything. This is known as a contingency fee arrangement.
How much money will I get in damages?
Your potential compensation depends upon your specific case. There are many factors, including medical bills, loss of life, and type of injury that all factor into a person’s awarded damages.
When will my case be resolved?
That’s a difficult question to answer. Some cases can be resolved quickly. Some, particularly those with complex circumstances, can take a long time. During your case evaluation, we will discuss your options, and we might be able to provide some insight into the timeframe, depending upon your case.
Will I win my case?
We hope so. No lawyer can ever guarantee that you will win. Many factors contribute to the strength of your case. However, if we decide that your case should be litigated, then we will do our very best to get you the compensation we believe you should receive.
At Spiros Law, P.C., our attorneys aggressively pursue justice for our clients.
