Understanding General Legal Fees Charged In California

When you meet a DTLA Law Group product liability lawyer for your free consultation, you will be able to ask many questions about the legal aspects of your potential lawsuit as well as the costs of securing legal services. But until then, please consider these general facts. The average lawyer in California bills at a rate of between $300 and $400 per hour. And many will require an upfront payment, accounting for 10 to 20 hours of work on your case. So, you could be looking at an initial investment of $3,000 to $8,000 to have a lawyer begin working to secure the compensation you deserve.

However, you need to understand that at DTLA Law Group, we focus on meeting the needs of all victims of defective products and seeing that justice is served to all. We never ask for any upfront legal fees or expenses before working on your lawsuit. So you never need to face the added financial challenges of a considerable expense long before you see any compensation from the case. Please reach out to DTLA Law Group immediately to request your free consultation to learn more about how to pursue a product liability lawsuit and how our caring and dedicated staff will assist you in this vital process.

The Three Categories Of Product Liability Lawsuits

Victims of an injury due to a defective product need to understand that there is more to preparing their lawsuit than filing a few papers and then appearing in court to show the injuries caused by the item in question. Typically, the case will revolve around one of three areas where the manufacturer failed. These areas include:

  • A design defect which renders the product unsafe to use as intended and can apply to an entire line of products or a single model  
  • A manufacturing defect typically impacts only a specific number of items that were incorrectly assembled or include defective or damaged components, making the finished product unsafe to use as intended
  • Marketing defect can also be known as a failure to warn, and the marketing for the item is incorrect or does not include appropriate warnings about the proper or intended use of the device

For your defective product lawsuit to be successful, your legal team will need to demonstrate that:

  • The item was defective or unsafe in its design or manufacturing
  • The item was being used in a reasonable or intended manner
  • The defect or missing warning is the direct cause of your injuries and harm
  • The victim actually suffered harm or damages due to the use of the item

The team at DTLA Law Group has decades of combined expertise in handling cases involving product liability and is ready to take on any case with legal merit. In addition, our firm offers a very client-friendly payment policy to ensure that you can afford to have the very best legal team handle your defective product lawsuit.

Understanding The Compensation Awarded In Product Liability Lawsuits

Many victims are unaware of the expenses and costs that can be included in the compensation for a defective product injury lawsuit. Some think that only medical expenses will be covered or maybe some lost wages as well. However, your DTLA Law Group legal team will work closely with you to ensure you receive the most robust compensation possible to cover all the losses and expenses caused by your injuries from the defective product. These costs will often include:

  • All medical expenses related to the injuries you suffered, as well as medical devices, medication, and therapy or mental healthcare for treatment of PTSD, trauma, or the stress created by your injuries
  • The replacement cost of any personal property damaged or destroyed in the incident
  • Your lost income if the injuries prevent you from doing your normal job or you miss work to attend medical appointments related to the damage caused by the defective product
  • All legal fees and expenses related to the preparation, filing, and litigation of your defective product lawsuit

Will My Lawyer Get A Part Of My Compensation?

If you have researched any information about personal injury lawsuits, you will have likely discovered that it is common for the legal team to be paid 30% to 40% of the lawsuit compensation. This could sound like a significant amount. However, you need to understand more about the added value a legal professional brings to any lawsuit before you make a choice that could cost you a lot of money.

It is commonly accepted that a case litigated by a legal professional, such as the lawyers at DTLA Law Group, will secure three times the compensation awarded to a case handled by the victim with no legal guidance. In addition, this does not take into account that the majority of these cases that are filed and managed by the victim never make it to court and are dismissed due to errors or mistakes made in filing or preparing the case.

To clearly demonstrate the value of hiring DTLA Law Group, let’s use a simple case value of $100K. If you handle this case yourself, you will be very fortunate to secure that total amount. However, if the same case and facts are handled by DTLA Law Group, the outcome is likely to be $300K in compensation. However, you will still need to pay your legal experts up to $120K for their services, assuming the highest average rate is their fee. But you still get $180K to cover your costs and expenses without the hassle and stress of litigating the case yourself. Investing in professional legal services from DTLA Law Group for your defective product lawsuit will result in getting about twice as much compensation as you would handling the case on your own.
