Cost of a Medical Malpractice Lawyer

We were contacted the other day by a person who believed that she was a victim of medical malpractice at one of the local medical facilities here in Naperville. She was wondering whether or not it would cost her anything to be represented by an attorney to pursue the claim. We explained to her that we work on what’s known as a contingency fee basis.

Medical Malpractice Case Value

We were contacted the other day by a person who believes that she was the victim of medical malpractice at one of the local Naperville hospitals. She was wondering how we would determine the value of a medical malpractice case. We explained to her that there are a number of factors that go into determining the value of any case, but specifically in a medical malpractice case, we look to Number One, the negligence of the doctor, whether or not the doctor or the facility is in fact liable and committed malpractice, Number Two, what is the nature and the extent of the injury, whether it was a temporary injury or something that’s permanent, the amount of the medical bills, the amount of any lost time, the amount of any pain and suffering, the loss of a normal life, and any disfigurement that may have occurred as a result of the medical malpractice.

All of these factors are considered when trying to make an evaluation of a medical malpractice case. If you have a question regarding a medical malpractice matter or any other case, please feel free to give us a call. We’re here to help.

Medical Malpractice Case Timeline

We received a call from a potential new client who believes that she was the victim of medical malpractice at one of the local area hospitals in Naperville. She was wondering how long it would take for a potential medical malpractice case to resolve. We told her that these are some of the most complex cases because of the medicine that’s involved as well as the fact that they are expert witness heavy and intensive. As such, cases that are medical malpractice types of cases typically take at least two to four years to go through the system.

They are often heavily litigated. Many of them go to trial. That gives us a little bit longer timeframe than the typical auto case or premises liability matter. If you have a question regarding this or any other matter, please feel free to give us a call.
