...or do most of them want/need a down payment to litigate a Legal Malpractice case?
IT DEPENDS. MANY MALPRACTICE CASE REQUIRE A MEDICAL REPORT BEFORE THE CASE GETS STARTED. IF THE FIRM IS LARGE AND THE CASE IS A WINNER, THE FIRM MAY COVER ALL COSTS. HOWEVER, ALL THESE COSTS WILL EVENTUALLY BE DEDUCTED FROM ANY RECOVERY. SO, IN ANSWER TO YOUR INQUIRY, THE MEDICAL MALPRACTICE CASE IS ALMOST ALWAYS A CONTINGENCY CASE BUT SOMETIMES A SOLO PRACTITIONER MEY NEED THE MEDICAL REPORT TO DECIDE WHETHER TO INVEST HIS TIME AND PURSUE THE CASE . BASED ON THE FACT THAT MOST PRACTITIONERS RECEIVE 10 TO 15 INQUIRIES A MONTH ON THE AVERAGE, THE SOLO WOULD MOST LIKELY GO BANKRUPT IF HJE HAD TO ABSORB ALL THE INITIAL COSTS OF DETERMINING WHETHER A CASE IS VIABLE. HOPE YOU CAN FIND A LARGE FIRM INTERESTED IN YOUR CASE. BEST OF LUCK.See question
