What Are the Fees Associated With Medical Malpractice Cases?

When most people think of attorneys and the fees they charge, they typically think of one thing—hourly billing. How much is my attorney going to charge me? Are they counting every email exchange, text message, or phone call? Is every minute of my case going to be billed?

When it comes to medical malpractice, this isn’t the case. In medical malpractice cases, the fees are derived from contingency fees, which means your attorneys only receive a payment if they make a recovery on your behalf. All of the costs of a med mal case—investigative costs, expert costs, litigation costs, and preparation for trial—are paid for by the attorneys.
