How Can a Lawyer Obtain Compensation?
In cases of birth injury, a lawsuit may be the clearest way to obtain compensation. A lawsuit may take a couple of different paths, including a settlement and a trial.
We generally pursue a settlement first. Settlements are the most common outcome for civil cases, per the American Bar Association (ABA). This is because settlements can be an efficient solution to a case. A settlement is generally quicker and less costly than a trial.
Ben Crump Law, PLLC is not afraid to go to trial, though. We handle every client’s case based on its unique circumstances. If your case requires a trial, your lawyer will take it there.
You Pay No Fees Until We Win
Our goal is to ensure that you and your child suffer no further harm. This includes both financial and psychological harm. We do not charge any upfront fees. You only pay a fee if we win, and that fee comes from your settlement or judgment. You do not pay your lawyer out of your own pocket under any circumstances.
