How Much Does a Medical Malpractice Lawyer Cost?
If you are successful with your malpractice claim, you will pay your attorney a percentage of the award. In California, there is a limit on the amount an attorney can bill you when they are charging on a contingent fee basis. For the first $50,000 that you are awarded, your attorney cannot receive more than 40 percent. For the next $50,000, your attorney will not get more than 33.3 percent. Your lawyer is not permitted to bill more than 25 percent of the next $500,000. And finally, if you are awarded even more money than that, your attorney cannot charge you more than 15 percent of any amount that exceeds $600,000.
Example: You are awarded $500,000. For the first $50,000, your attorney cannot charge more than $20,000. For the next $50,000, you won’t be paying more than $16,665. For the remaining $300,000, your attorney cannot charge more than $100,000. So out of your $500,000 award, the most you can be billed in total is $136,665, which leaves you with $363,335.
While it might seem like you’re giving away a lot of your award, it’s important to realize that you won’t have to pay anything upfront. Many people wouldn’t be able to afford an attorney because of the high cost of the volume of work that is necessary in these types of cases. Being able to pay after a case is negotiated or won in court is a win for everyone involved. This is a great option. Additionally, without an experienced and qualified Stockton medical malpractice attorney, you likely won’t win your case, so whatever you have to eventually pay is going to be well worth it.
