How Much Does It Cost to get a Medical Malpractice Lawyer?

If you suspect or know you’re a victim of medical malpractice, you likely have two immediate worries on your mind.

First, you’re worried about your recovery. You’re probably wondering what it will take to get better and if you’ll need another surgery or invasive treatment that will keep you sidelined and out of work for more days, weeks, or months.

Second, you’re most likely worried about how much your doctor or surgeon’s mistake will cost you financially. The thought of receiving medical bills not only for your botched care, but also for revision surgeries or treatments, can be overwhelming.

For many people, the fear of even more medical bills makes them reluctant to spend any additional money, even for necessary treatment, and it even puts many victims off the idea of hiring a lawyer because they think they can’t afford one.

Thankfully, getting a medical malpractice lawyer isn’t just doable, but it comes at absolutely no upfront cost to you. Here’s why.

Our Medical Malpractice Lawyers Work on a Contingency Fee

What is a contingency fee? It means that our “legal fees” are only applicable if we get our clients settlements or win their lawsuits. At our firm, we call it our No Fee Guarantee®.

If you hire us to build your medical malpractice claim and we either convince the insurance company to give you a fair settlement, or we take your claim to trial and win you a monetary award via jury verdict, then and only then will we get paid.

Contingency fees vary from law firm to law firm and from case to case, but know this: we always demand our attorney fees be paid by the insurer in addition to your compensation, so you get to keep the entire amount you deserve for your losses. That means when you get your settlement, the cost for our fees is already included with what you’ll need for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering, not deducted from it.

Our Consultations Are Free, Too

Not only do our clients never see a bill while we’re building their claims, but we don’t bill them for initial consultations, either.

At Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy, we know that medical malpractice victims and their families are often traumatized by what’s happened to them. The last thing they want or need is to be worried about the fee for a consultation with a lawyer (or more than one lawyer) growing by the minute, or feeling like they have to rush to tell their story to avoid a huge bill just to learn if they have a case or not.

Whether you tell us what happened over the phone or in person, you can rest assured that we’ll give you all the time you need to share your story without worrying about an hourly rate or a flat consultation fee. And finally, there’s no obligation to hire our firm if you decide we aren’t the right fit for you.

There Are No Hidden or Surprises Charges for Any Extra Work on Our Part

Our Ohio medical malpractice lawyers know that every case is different. Some medical malpractice cases are straightforward and resolve in a matter of weeks. Others are extremely complex and require several months or even years to research, build, present, and win.

We stand by our No Fee Guarantee® on all cases we take on, big or small. Regardless of how long it takes us to build your claim or how much money you may be eligible to receive, we’ll never charge you a penny throughout the process unless we get money for you.

That also applies to you interacting with us. There’s never a charge for contacting us while your case is ongoing, asking us questions about how it’s proceeding, getting advice from our lawyers and legal team, or even dropping by the office to speak with your lawyer in person.

We want you to feel confident about every aspect of your claim without worrying about expensive hourly lawyer fees or invoices.
