Do I Have to Pay Personal Injury Lawsuit Expenses?

New York Attorney Says the Firm Fronts the Costs

Video Transcript:

Judy Maggio:

Do you know how you pay for expenses incurred during your personal injury lawsuit in New York City? Let's ask New York lawyer Ron Landau for an Ask the Lawyers Quick Question.

Ron Landau:

Expenses are part of any personal injury lawsuit. Expenses, such as the filing fees that are associated with the court, the expenses associated with obtaining your medical records, and these are expenses that the client is not expected to pay up front. Unfortunately or fortunately, as the case may be, the law permits the lawyers to front those expenses for the client at this point, and contained in your retainer agreement will be an explanation that those fees will be deducted from the total settlement or verdict at the conclusion of the case, so the expenses associated with getting medical records or investigation or engineers, those are things the client never has to concern themselves with as really they need to be most concerned with just getting themselves better.
