A down payment for a Maryland medical malpractice lawyer is a question that is on the minds of a lot of people who are thinking of hiring a Maryland medical malpractice lawyer. As a matter of fact, this exact question was posed by an individual who saw one of our how to hire a Maryland medical malpractice lawyer videos.
THE FEE AGREEMENT
Before getting too far along the road regarding the question of the down payment for a Maryland medical malpractice lawyer, I want to remind you that you need to be sure to ask the lawyer you are thinking about hiring specific questions regarding your case. With that said, many personal injury and medical malpractice lawyers in Maryland handle these cases on a contingency fee basis.
What this means is that the lawyer will agree to take their legal fee and sometimes costs from the settlement or jury verdict. Usually the lawyer will front these costs on behalf of the client. The client will know all of this information beforehand because he or she will have agreed upon the terms before signing the fee agreement.
SO THE DOWN PAYMENT FOR A MARYLAND MEDICAL MALPRACTICE LAWYER?
Hopefully you now understand that for many lawyers you will not need to put a down payment down to hire the lawyer for your personal injury or medical malpractice case because of the contingency fee agreement.
With that said, I have to again suggest that you be sure to clear this issue up with the lawyer you are thinking of retaining before signing a fee agreement with that lawyer. It is always a good idea to understand all terms and issues before signing on the dotted line.
