The good news is there is no upfront cost to talk with a New Jersey medical malpractice attorney about your case. A NJ medical malpractice attorney will review your case free of charge. Medical malpractice cases require lawyers who have a deep understanding of both the law and medicine. NJ medical malpractice lawyers typically work on a percentage, also known as contingency fee basis. That allows anyone to have quality legal representation. It also means that the injury victim doesn’t pay a lawyer’s fee unless the New Jersey medical malpractice attorney wins a settlement or verdict for the client. If your medical malpractice lawyer obtains a settlement, the lawyer receives a portion of the recovery.
New Jersey court rules set the amount that a NJ medical malpractice lawyer can charge in a contingent fee arrangement. New Jersey Court Rule 1:27-7 sets the contingent fee at 33 1/3 percent. The percentage is reduced for recoveries of more than $500,000. When you hire a New Jersey medical malpractice attorney on a contingency fee basis, the lawyer will likely advance all out-of-pocket expenses for court costs and the costs of expert reports. At the end of the case, those costs are reimbursed before the legal fee is calculated. The contingency settlement is lower for cases involving minors.
