Paying for Medical Bills and Cost of Living during a Law Suit
Interviewer: What happens if someone’s injured and they have medical bills, or can’t work, how do they live while they’re filing suit?
Stephen Boutros: That’s where a lawyer come into play. First and foremost, I can secure quality healthcare for our clients, no matter what those healthcare needs are. Everything from surgery, physical therapy, and prosthetic devices, I work with a team of healthcare providers who are willing to work with us on Letters of Protection. That means that I’ll protect those bills once I make a recovery in the case.
As far as money, I work with a team of funding companies that will look at the quality of the case and the projected value of the case and make advances to our clients to help them get their bills paid while the case is pending.
Cost of Hiring a Lawyer to Handle a Lawsuit against the Employer
Interviewer: How much does it cost to hire an attorney in a case like this?
Stephen Boutros: I work on a pure contingency fee basis. I screen our cases to make sure I only take cases I believe in. There is no guarantee. There’s always risk involved but I screen our cases. I take cases that I believe I am going to succeed on, and the only way I work is a contingency fee basis. If I win the case for our clients, I get paid and if not, I don’t. I also front the expenses on our cases, so our contract is in essence a zero risk contract to our clients. We’re taking the risk on for you.
