Neither my firm nor any Plaintiff firm I know of charge 50%. Sounds like more Rush or Hannity bullsh!t spin that you are believing there, USC.
Depending on the case and the difficulty in winning the case, the contigency fee can go from 25% up to 40% at our firm. Other variables include if the case has appellate work involved or even if the case is litigated or not.
Those clients that agree to the 40% understand that their cases have difficulties and they are typically the most difficult to win (and their cases are always litigated).
You are smart enough to understand that if the plaintiff doesnt win, the plaintiff's attorney dont get paid, right? We end up working for free.
That is the primary reason that med mal contingency fees are typically higher.
So, since there is a risk of the lawyer not getting a dime for hundreds or thousands of hours of work on a case, is it not permissible to charge a higher rate than normal? Is there any other profession that does the same? Name one.
Tell me again why you give a fukk how much I charge? What business is it of yours?
Do I tell you how much to make at your job?
