Legal Answers
Q. In a class action lawsuit is it a standard practice for law firms to sub contract to 2nd law firm
A: There ARE circumstances where the fee can go up in a mass tort case, but you would have been notified and signed a joint representation agreement at the start. The fee should total 40% + costs for cases in litigation, give or take. The fee doesn't go up just because another lawyer is involved - the lawyers split the fee among themselves. That being said, it's totally normal for a firm to associate in a 2nd law firm who already has a bunch of the particular bad drug cases.
Q. How much will a lawyer charge to represent me in a sexual abuse claim against a Catholic priest in Seattle?
A: The standard fee for personal injury cases, including sex abuse cases, is 1/3 of the total recovery plus costs advanced. If the matter goes to litigation, the fee goes up to 40% plus costs advanced. I commend your bravery in coming forward to get some justice. I wish you the best.
Q. When should I hire an attorney to appeal a permanent partial disability claim?
A: I say this as someone who is not a workers comp attorney: Please, never go through a WA workers compensation claim without an attorney again. It's possible you've left an enormous amount of money on the table. People get fee sensitive when thinking about workers comp attorneys, knowing they take part of regular time loss, but they don't know that this is more than offset by having someone wring every last dollar out of your claim, whether it be increasing your time loss amount to the correct one, elongating your claim by more than the time loss attorney fee (let's say they take 15%, and they keep your claim going more than 15% longer than you could on your own - which is a universal result with an attorney worth their salt), increasing your PPD amount, or getting you a pension you wouldn't get on your own. You should look one up immediately after reading this message. Just be wary. There's a firm or two that spends boatloads on workers comp attorney ads but don't have any workers comp attorneys on their website. Look up everyone's reviews on Google and Avvo before making a decision. Good luck to you!
