What to Expect
Patients who have suffered from a dangerous product can be overwhelmed by the possibilities a lawsuit may bring. After seeking legal counsel patients can expect to be interviewed in the weeks following their submission where their case is reviewed by an expert.
If the case fits the firm’s criteria, the case can be accepted and the long road to recovery can begin. During the periods of discovery and pretrial motions, the patient may be consulted to provide their testimony or not consulted at all. Following these events, the patient will likely not need to contribute to the case unless it is to weigh in on whether to accept a settlement.
The firms that MedTruth partners with will not require an up-front fee, but will instead work on contingency, only taking payment from the verdict or settlement that is won or taking nothing at all. While these cases may last years, patients are advised not to sign with other firms as the ongoing case is still being handled by their current law firm. Patients unsure about the status of their case can call their firm for updates periodically. For this reason, it is suggested that after having their case taken, patients should record the information about their case and firm in a safe place.
