Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost to file a lawsuit in California?

The first step in a lawsuit is filing papers with the Court, and these costs can range from under $100 to about $500 depending on which Court you’re in and whether you are requesting a trial to a jury or a Judge. Then you have to serve those papers on the other party, which can cost about $50-$100 if you hire a professional process server.

Is your case worth filing a lawsuit over?

If you're in a serious dispute with someone, you may consider filing a lawsuit to get it resolved. But that's a big step, and before you take it you'll need to know whether your case is worth suing over, how and where you would file the paperwork, and what is involved in pursuing a case.

Do you have to pay legal fees if you lose a case?

Now if you were in a CONTRACT with this company, sued them and lost, the terms of the contract might specifically say that in such a case, the losing party has to pay the other side’s costs. Depends. If the court awards them damages including the legal fees, then yes, you have to pay it. If not, then obviously no.

How much does it cost to file a medical malpractice lawsuit?

If your case is simple and straightforward (they rarely are) and maybe you only need one doctor (‘expert’ witness) to testify at your trial, you might be able to spend as little as $5,000-$10,000 in costs from the beginning of the lawsuit (filing fees) through to the end (expert witness deposition and trial testimony charges).
