Why Do I Need an Attorney?
Hiring an attorney to represent you when you have been injured in an elevator or escalator accident can significantly increase your likelihood of success. Lawyers know the laws, can play to the strengths of your case and can highlight the weaknesses in the opposition’s case. They can also determine who may held liable for your injuries.
It is important to remember that multiple parties may be liable in the event of an elevator or escalator accident. The property owner or manager, maintenance company, manufacturer, or some combination of all these parties may have been responsible for your accident. Identifying the at-fault party may require an in-depth investigation and knowledge of the law, so hiring a lawyer is crucial.
With a lawyer on your side, you can focus on recovering from your injuries while they take care of the complicated legal work required. You are likely to receive a much higher settlement with a lawyer’s help than you would trying to handle your case on your own.
