Cost of a Medical Malpractice Lawsuit
Rhode Island Medical Malpractice Lawsuit Attorneys
DeLuca & Weizenbaum is selective about the number and types of medical malpractice cases we handle on behalf of plaintiffs every year. We handle all cases on a contingency fee basis. If we accept your case, you will not have to worry about paying for legal expenses. In fact, you don't pay for anything upfront. We pay for the cost of investigating and preparing your case, including hiring expert witnesses to help us prepare the strongest case possible for a settlement or jury award. If we don't help you recover money damages in a negotiated settlement or winning in court, you won't pay attorneys fees.
There Are Costs Associated With Preparing a Case
DeLuca & Weizenbaum makes the investment in obtaining a positive outcome.
Upon successful resolution of your case, we will deduct our expenses — the hiring of
the medical experts and other costs of trial preparation — as well as reasonable
attorney fees. We undertake the expenses of trial preparation — primarily in paying for the medical experts — which can cost our firm as much as $50,000 to $125,000. Combine
those expenses with the risk in any case, and you can understand why we need to
look at significant financial case outcomes to make it feasible for us to proceed.
Justice Delayed Is Justice Denied
At DeLuca & Weizenbaum, we strongly believe that the heart of every medical malpractice lawsuit must speak to injustice, not just money. Winning a case often means having a hand in changing the way the medical system operates. At times, we have gone beyond the trial, testifying before regulators or urging other major changes to make sure that quality and fair healthcare is provided in the future.
