For clients of our firm, there are no up-front costs (and no costs at all if we don’t recover money for the family). In wrongful death cases, as with all personal injury cases that we handle, our firm pays all case expenses out of our own pocket. Those expenses include investigation costs, filing fees, the costs of record requests, deposition costs, expert witness fees, travel, and (if necessary) trial preparation costs. Our firm is reimbursed for those expenses at the end of the case from the money that we recover for the family. If we don’t recover any money, we don’t get paid back and we don’t charge our client.
