A Qualified Attorney Can Help
It is the attorney's obligation to determine as quickly and efficiently as possible whether there is a good, actionable case. Medical malpractice cases are by their very nature, complex, expensive to pursue, have a high risk of no recovery, and often involve a client's "personal" attachment.
The first step in the process involves the potential client entering into an agreement with the attorney in which agreement sets forth the method of attorney compensation. Typically the attorney agrees to advance all costs, only to be repaid costs in the event of recovery, and to work on a contingent fee basis, that is the attorney would receive a percentage of the gross recovery. Thus, the client will endure no economic loss in the event of no recovery.
