Experienced Texas attorneys who focus on medical malpractice cases don’t typically cost any more than a run-of-the-mill personal injury attorney. That’s why I think it’s so important for you to hire an attorney with directly-relevant experience and competence to handle your case.
The difference is that lawyers who regularly handle medical negligence cases know how to manage this complex type of litigation. This includes retaining the appropriate type and number of mandatory medical experts, while avoiding cost overruns. Medical malpractice attorneys also are familiar with the notice requirements and obligations to satisfy Medicare liens, Medicaid liens, and the subrogation rights of some private health insurance companies.
To give you an idea of some of the cost you should consider when hiring an attorney, I’ll use the example of Painter Law Firm. Our firm advances all case expenses, including the expensive expert fees that many general personal injury lawyers shy away from. We are paid on a contingency fee, which means that our payment comes out of any recovery at mediation, settlement, or trial.
