The state of Indiana sets the amount that a medical malpractice attorney may charge for representing an injured patient at 15 percent of the award paid by the Indiana Patient Compensation Fund. The attorney may charge a fee that is a reasonable percentage of the combined settlement with the healthcare provider and the Patient Compensation Fund. However, the fee can include no more than 15 percent of the award from the Fund. At Baker & Gilchrist, we charge a sliding-scale fee based on the total amount of the recovery, ranging from 27 percent to 35 percent.
The medical malpractice lawyers at Baker & Gilchrist advance all of the costs in litigating your medical malpractice case. We only receive reimbursement for those costs if we obtain a recovery for you.
Our approach is that injured patients should not have to pay money out of pocket to seek justice for a serious medical error. If we do not obtain compensation for you, you do not pay us anything.
