Good luck, sir.

Unless you contract some disease, lose a finger or hand, or rupture some internal organ, you're looking at peanuts, if anything.

For a medical malpractice suit does the lawyer usually charge a fee upfront or work on a contingency fee?
"LESS IS MORE" It is the cumulative effect that kills deals!!! How many times do I have to say this?  >:(

Will usually depend on their gut feeling of success.  Smaller shops are more likely to charge a retainer and handle it hourly, larger firms are more likely to work on contingency.

The general rule in med mal is contingency.

Hey - FL lawyer here.

Medmal is almost always contingency. In fact, I'd be shocked to find a place that charges you hourly and wouldn't recommend you use someone that does. On that note, some states (Read: FL)  have enacted caps on legal fees for medmal cases to disincentive lawsuits and help control medmal insurance premiums for doctors. It is very standard practice for a lawyer to ask you to waive those caps before they take the case. This is not a red flag. The fact is that bringing a medmal case is very expensive and it's not worth it for the ridiculous caps put in place.

How much would it cost for a lawyer to write up a draft contract for me. It's for an apartment rental agency so the 2 parties will sign when they confirm. Is there a way to download one free?

You can write it yourself, if you know what you want it to say. 

If you download a form for 20 bucks, that may help give you ideas on what sorts of things you want to discuss in the contract.  But downloading and signing one without reading it and deciding if you want those things, seems a lot less logical then just agreeing with the other side on what you can think of and writing it in plain english.

e.g. A contract to sell arba minim, written by a layperson:
Contract to sell arba minim
Henche will sell Dan's arba minim.  Dan will supply arba minim for sale, and henche will sell and will receive a 10% commission on all sales.  If any are left, henche may return them for full credit. Henche has full discretion on setting price, so long as it is at least 1% above Dan's price.  If henche or Dan wish to cancel, they may on 1 day's notice. Henche may not sell for anyone else this year, even if he cancels this deal. However, if Dan cancels, then henche may sell for someone else.

See, the contract above is probably binding in any state. It has bilateral consideration (henche is giving up right to sell for anyone else, Dan is agreeing to let henche sell for at least 1 day.).  And anyone could have written it, as long as they thought of what they want the deal to be.
