Question:  How can I ever pay for a case like this?

Short Answer:  For Medical Malpractice Lawsuits, Lukenbill & Lukenbill’s fees are contingent – which means you do not pay unless you receive a financial recovery. This is known as a contingency fee.


Long Answer:

When you or a loved one is injured, the added stress of how to afford costs of potential lawsuit can be overwhelming. To help ease these stresses, it is our policy to take Medical Malpractice cases on contingency fee.

That means that you pay us nothing unless your case comes to a successful close – a settlement or verdict in your favor. At Lukenbill & Lukenbill, our attorney fees are then based on a percentage of the amount of that final outcome. We evaluate your case seriously – and if we agree to take your case, we believe we have a strong chance of winning the case for you. We will then create an attorney-client agreement that clearly describes what percentage of the settlement or verdict we will receive if successful. And, again – if we do not recover a settlement for you, we do not get paid.

We believe everyone should have fair access to the legal system, and this type of agreement can make that possible. If you or a loved one has suffered from a Medical Malpractice situation, justice should not be dependent upon whether or not you can afford legal fees.

Any costs for litigating your case will be covered by Lukenbill & Lukenbill upfront, including expert witness fees, depositions and court fees. Like the attorney fees, these costs will be taken out of any compensation received from a successfully resolved case. There should not be a financial risk involved when pursuing a claim to hold wrongdoers accountable. These types of agreements allow you to pursue your medical malpractice lawsuit without worry over financial resources.
