West Palm Beach personal injury attorney Ted Babbitt understands that a medical malpractice victim has much more to worry about than coming up with the money to hire a lawyer for legal representation. That is why he offers potential clients a no-fee consultation and represents clients under a contingency fee arrangement.
A contingency fee arrangement means that the lawyer’s entire fee is paid when the case is settled. The client and attorney will agree upon the lawyer’s fee before work on the case begins. There may be other fees involved as well such as a litigation fee that the lawyer incurs by bringing in expert medical witnesses, obtaining medical records, and paying court costs. If this is the case, upon receiving the award, the litigation fee will be subtracted, then the lawyer fee will be subtracted, and the balance will go to the client.
Working medical malpractice cases on a contingency fee basis has multiple benefits. It gives the lawyer an incentive to work hard on behalf of their client because if no compensation is obtained, the client does not have to pay the attorney’s fees. The contingency fee agreement also means no out-of-pocket lawyer expenses for the client which allows anyone to hire a qualified lawyer, no matter what their personal financial situation is.
