The Issue

With attorneys’ fees commonly 33% or more of the total award, victims are left with a fraction of their total award.

The Solution

Broaden the contingency fee schedule currently in place for medical malpractice actions to all tort cases.  A sliding fee schedule would ensure that the major part on the award goes to the injured victim, rather than the attorneys’ fees.
