Does It Cost Anything to Hire a Yaz Lawyer?
If you have a Yaz, Yasmin or Ocella birth control pill lawsuit case, money should not get in the way of seeking justice for the harm you have suffered. Such legal claims can be pursued through a contingency fee arrangement. This means that you won’t have to pay for your lawyer’s services unless you recover compensation.
Also, the amount you pay will depend on the amount of compensation that you receive. A typical contingency fee agreement allots a percentage of any compensation derived from a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit to the attorney or law firm.
A contingency fee allows anyone with a case to pursue justice. It also ensures that your attorney has carefully considered your drug injury case and agreed to help you because the attorney believes in your claim and the likelihood of its success.
Contingency Fees and Personal Injury / Wrongful Death Claims
A contingency fee in a Yaz lawsuit ensures that you and your drug injury lawyer are focused on the same outcome: Securing proper compensation for your personal injury or the wrongful death of a loved one. It also ensures that you can pursue your claim regardless of your personal financial circumstances.
Keep in mind: There may be certain fees, such as filing fees, costs for deposing witnesses or similar expenses that must be paid as they occur. These costs should be detailed in your attorney-client agreement.
Once a settlement is reached or the court orders an award, the specific amount of money your attorney will receive can be determined.
It is also important to understand that if you or the deceased’s estate has outstanding medical bills or liens (i.e. from Medicaid, Medicare or private healthcare providers), they must be paid before the balance of a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit award will be paid to you.
A contingency fee arrangement protects the interests of both the client and the attorney in a Yaz personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit. It ensures the client that a majority of a settlement or court award will go toward the client’s expenses and other needs. It also ensures the Yaz injury attorney of appropriate compensation for their successful negotiation or litigation efforts.
