Medical Malpractice in Iowa

An Iowa medical malpractice attorney may be able to help you recover money if you think you're a victim of a medical malpractice. If your lawsuit is successful, you may be entitled to compensation to pay for injury-related healthcare costs, lost income, rehabilitation expenses, pain and suffering.

How Much Does a Medical Malpractice Attorney Cost?

If you're thinking about hiring a medical malpractice lawyer, you may be wondering how much it will cost. Good question!

Most medical malpractice lawyers in Iowa charge what's known as a contingency fee. When you hire an attorney on contingency:

  • You pay no up-front legal fees and won't receive any bills while your case is still in progress
  • If your case is successful, you'll pay your Iowa medical malpractice attorney a percentage of any money you receive as a result of an out-of-court settlement or court judgment. You'll also reimburse the lawyer for any expenses incurred while preparing your case.
  • If your medical malpractice claim is unsuccessful, you owe the attorney nothing.

The advantage of hiring an attorney on contingency is that you're not spending money on legal fees while your case is in progress. This is particularly helpful if you're unable to work as a result of your injuries.

But because an Iowa attorney has a vested interest in the success of your case, most lawyers will only take you on as a client if they're reasonably sure your case will be successful. This means that if you have a weak case or one that's not worth much money, you may have difficulty finding an Iowa medical malpractice lawyer to handle your case.
