What are two popular questions for a Maryland childbirth injury lawyer?
Even though there are many more, the two issues discussed in this educational article and accompanying video are the ones that we are asked a lot.
Hopefully by the end of this reading you will have a better understanding and less questions.
“HOW MUCH WILL THIS COST ME?”
As you may have already figured, the first question deals with how much this will cost the client if they do decide to pursue the case.
Before getting too deep in things you have to understand that the information presented here is general in nature and that you should always speak with your attorney as to the specifics of your case.
With that said, most attorneys in Maryland who handle these cases do so on a contingency fee basis.
“WHAT THE HECK IS A CONTINGENCY FEE!??”
The best way to look at a contingency fee is that it is the type of agreement in which the attorney/law firm agrees to put up the upfront costs and take an agreed upon legal fee at the conclusion of the case.
The agreed upon fee will be contracted between the client and the attorney/law firm.
One other quick point about the fee agreement and that is to be sure to understand all the terms of the agreement before signing.
“HOW DO I KNOW IF I MIGHT HAVE A CASE?”
The second question that a lot of clients have is whether they actually have a case.
No one wants to go down the road in this process and then see the train fall off the tracks deep into the process.
How attorneys help to prevent this is by doing a really good investigation into the case before hand.
Because these types of cases are complex and take a lot of time, attorneys take will review the case and also have their medical expert to give an opinion as to whether there was a departure from the standard of care causing the client’s injury.
After this investigation is completed the attorney will explain the pros and the cons of the case.
