What is the Difference Between Attorney Fees and Costs?
Attorney fees are fees paid for the work we do on your behalf. Our fee is what is contingent on making a recovery on your behalf. Costs are hard costs which we advance on your behalf for the investigation of your claim, or the pursuit of your claim in court. These costs include costs to obtain medical records, costs paid to speak with your doctors, costs paid to the court to file a lawsuit, expert costs, etc. These costs are advanced by us to be paid back by you when your claim is resolved.
