How To Hire A Maryland Childbirth Injury Attorney?
One of the most frustrating issues to parents who think their child’s birth injury was due to medical malpractice is how does one find out how much it costs to hire a Maryland childbirth injury and medical malpractice attorney.
If you are reading this educational article because you think that your doctor, or the hospital was the cause of your injury, the information contained within will help you too.
“LAWYERS CAN COST HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS AN HOUR!!!”
Most people understand that an attorney can cost hundreds of dollars an hour.
Because of this fact, some people who may have valid claims fail to contact an attorney to advocate on their behalf because of the cost.
Even though attorneys can cost hundreds of dollars an hour, there is hope for these types of cases and that is through a contingency fee agreement.
THE CONTINGENCY FEE AGREEMENT…
What you will find is that most attorneys in Maryland handle personal injury and medical malpractice cases on a contingency fee basis.
What this essentially means is that you and the attorney will draw up a written agreement stating that the attorney will receive his or her fee from the proceeds of your case.
In addition to this, the agreement will dictate how costs will be dealt with.
For example, will you be responsible for costs regardless of whether you win the case or will you only have to pay back costs if you settle the case or getting a winning jury verdict.

Without it many people who have viable claims would not be able to have their day in court.
