You have been injured due to what you feel is negligence on the part of your doctor.
You have thought about it and thought about it and you know that you want to sue.
But here is the thing, you know that doctors have medical malpractice insurance and because of that the doctor will have high powered lawyers working for him or her.
So how are you supposed to go out and hire your own lawyer when your funds may are limited?
This is a really good question that a lot of people wonder.
Fortunately, most lawyers in Maryland who handle these types of medical malpractice cased do so on what we call a contingency fee.
What this means is that the lawyer will put up the money to fund and prosecute the case on behalf of the injured person.
In return, the lawyer will take a percentage of the fee negotiated in writing with the client.
These types of agreements help injured people seek recourse for their injuries at the hands of doctors and or hospitals.
With all of the above said, be sure to make sure that you understand how cost’s work in your fee agreement.
For example, do you have to repay costs regardless of whether your win or lose your case?
This is something that you really want to understand before you sign your fee agreement.
In addition, if there are other terms and condition in the agreement that you do not understand, feel free to have the attorney explain the terms to you before signing.
