There are many different fee structures that can apply to a medical malpractice case, although most attorneys who practice in this field offer a contingency fee agreement, where the attorney will take a percentage of the settlement amount or jury award. There are additional costs that are incurred throughout the litigation process, including court filing fees, expert expenses, and discovery and administrative costs. An engagement letter and retainer agreement should spell out how all of these costs are handled throughout the case.
These are only a few of the many questions that a person who has suffered harm due to a medical professional’s mistake may have. At Stern Law, PLLC, we are committed to providing clients and other individuals with the answers and information that they need to make the decisions that are right for them.
