Many people bring compelling questions about medical malpractice to our attention at Bennerotte & Associates, P.A. Our attorneys are prepared to answer questions concerning potential clients' experiences and concerns. On this page, we list some of the most common questions that our clients often ask:

Does it cost me anything to talk over my potential medical malpractice case with a lawyer? In most cases, no. At our law firm, we gladly offer free initial consultations. We learn a lot from the stories we hear in free initial consultations. Likewise, people who take the time to talk to us generally take away helpful information, whether or not they retain our services.

Do I need to put down a retainer for your services to have you involved in my case? In most cases, no. What is needed to have us on your case is for both of us to agree that we will work together in pursuit of compensation for you. Talking to one of our lawyers is a first step to determining whether an attorney-client relationship will be in your best interest and ours.

How are medical malpractice lawyers paid? In most cases, we are paid on a contingency basis. That means that our attorneys' fees come to us at the conclusion of your case, when a negligent health care provider pays out compensation through a settlement or verdict. Our pay is a percentage of the total. This pay arrangement helps ensure that we are operating from the same side of the equation. Your success and our success will be aligned.

Do I have a case? The answer to this question is, of course, personal to each inquirer. You may have a strong case if a doctor, nurse, therapist, clinic or hospital failed to meet accepted standards of care and you were harmed as a result. This could mean that you were injured through a surgical error or anemergency room error, to give two examples.

Is it OK to waste your time talking about a small case? We welcome the opportunity to evaluate your case. We do not consider it a waste of our time. Furthermore, we often find that some people believe they don't have valid cases when in fact, they do. Our experience can work in your favor during the initial inquiry phase.
