Attorney Fees and Costs for Hiring Medical Malpractice Attorneys
No Fees or Costs Without Recovery
At the Shapiro Law Group, you pay no fees or costs upfront. There is no charge to meet with us during your initial consultation. If we agree to pursue your case, you will owe no attorney fees or costs unless you receive a verdict or settlement in your favor. When you receive a verdict or settlement, we will deduct attorney fees and any costs advanced from that sum. If the case does not end in your favor, you owe no attorney fees or costs at all.
Some firms require the client to pay for court costs – expert witness fees, filing costs and more. We understand that most people injured by medical malpractice do not have the ability to pay these costs out of pocket. This is why we advance those until the end of the case. This gives every person the ability to have access to a qualified lawyer, no matter their personal financial situation. Hiring an attorney should be something everyone can afford.
Why Offer Contingency Fees for Medical Malpractice Victims?
For victims of medical malpractice, the future can look bleak. The healthcare industry continues to cut costs and deny claims, intimidating victims against pursuing any kind of meritorious charge against a physician, hospital or caregiver.
Hospitals and insurance companies may have money and resources, but you have facts and the law on your side. As a society, we hold healthcare practitioners to a high standard. When they fail to perform the standard of care required of them, serious harm results. They may spend countless dollars defending themselves, but as we see time and again, the truth will prevail.
Unlike the medical industry, you do not need a big bank account to pursue necessary medical malpractice lawsuits against hospitals. You need an advocate on your side who is passionate about upholding your rights and confident in his understanding of how hospitals operate. Attorney Richard M. Shapiro comes from a family of doctors. He spent much of his early career assisting his father at a Yale University teaching hospital. He uses his 30 years’ experience to represent victims of medical negligence with a particular focus on helping children recover from devastating injuries.
30 Years of Experience in Medical Malpractice Cases
Richard M. Shapiro opened his firm more than 30 years ago to stand beside victims of the medical industry. Early in his life, he represented the family of a young girl struck with blindness after she sustained a brain injury during surgery. She ultimately fell into a coma and passed away from this surgical error. Her story and her memory inspire our team to continue fighting for families struggling with unfathomable loss.
We cannot undo the injury or bring back a lost loved one, but we seek justice and compensation to ease the transition into the next phase of your family’s life and inspire change within the industry. Lawsuits shine a light on negligent practices and urge professionals to adopt better standards that prevent other families from suffering the same heartbreak.
