Fortunately, that doesn’t happen often. We work hard on our trials and put on the best case we can. But if it does, we will work with all the medical providers to try and reduce the amounts they are owed to try and reach an equitable recovery for everyone. Sometimes a jury may only award medical bills or less. Jury trials have an inherent risk to them as they are unpredictable. That is why we do our best to present you with your best-case guaranteed scenario through settlement before taking that risk. If we are awarded nothing, your attorneys don’t receive any fee’s nor do they get reimbursed for their expenses. We don’t want that any more than you do! If there was an error at trial, we can also investigate appealing your case to a higher court.
We will spend money on your case. From collecting medical bills and records before suit (and during), to filing fees, process servers, deposition costs and expert fees. None of this cost you anything. We reimburse that from the recovery in your case after the attorney’s fees are deducted. If we make no recovery, you don’t owe us anything. Using the example of a $100,000 settlement with $10,000 in medical expenses and $2,000 in attorney expenses, funds are typically disbursed as follows:
- Total: $100,000
- Less Attorney Fees ( 33,333)
- Less Hospital Bill ( 10,000)
- Less Attorney expenses ( 2,000)
- Net to Client $ 54,667(EXAMPLE ONLY)
