Fees

Personal Injury Attorney Fees and Expenses

We explain fee agreements to each client in detail. When you come to our office, we will explain to you that we handle most cases on a contingent fee agreement, which means we get our fee from your eventual settlement or judgment Therefore, our clients do not have to worry about how they will pay attorney fees. Instead, our clients can focus on their recovery and treatment. This also means that in most personal injury cases we do not charge a fee if there is no recovery. If your case does not settle, it may be necessary to file and lawsuit and attend a trial. Trials for even the average car accident case usually generate expenses of $6,000 to $10,000. Medical malpractice and other complex cases are considerably more expensive. We will make every effort to work out a reasonable agreement regarding expenses.

While the rules and laws differ between Virginia and the District of Columbia, we will expect the client to reimburse this law firm for any out-of-pocket expenses whether the case result is good or bad from the client's viewpoint. We may ask for a retainer for anticipated expenses.

Honorarios y Gastos de Abogados Generados por Accidentes Personales

Nosotros explicamos en detalle a cada uno de nuestros clientes como será el pago de los honorarios. Cuando usted visita nuestras oficinas para una consulta legal, le explicaremos que en la mayoría de los casos el pago de honorarios está basado a un acuerdo denominado de contingencia. Contingencia significa que usted cancela los honorarios al abogado solo en el caso de llegarse a un acuerdo ó en base al resultado en corte. En la mayoría de los casos los honorarios representan un tercio (equivalente al 33.33%) del total obtenido como compesación de los daños. Si embargo, la ley requiere que el cliente se haga responsable por el pago de los gastos incurridos por el abogado para proceder con su caso. Si su caso no llega a un acuerdo, probablemete será necesario iniciar una demanda en corte y asistir a juicio. En promedio, los gastos incurridos en casos de accidentes personales que requieren ir a la corte oscilan de $6,000 a $10,000.

Casos por negligencia médica -mejor conocidos como de mala practica médica- o aquellos de mayor complejidad son considerablemente más costosos. Nosotros haremos nuestro mayor esfuerzo en trabajar con usted y así alcanzar a un razonable acuerdo para el pago de sus gastos.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
Jeremy Flachs led our complex, high value case to a successful financial settlement. We were very satisfied with his representation and could not imagine another attorney doing a better job. Multiple parties were involved, including insurance companies and hard to locate witnesses. Jeremy was on top of the details at all times, worked hard to keep costs down and responded immediately to our communications. He was also sensitive to the painful and personal nature of our case. We can recommend him without reservation. Judith Watson

My family and I have turned to the Law Offices of Jeremy Flachs multiple times over the course of the past two decades. Mr. Flachs and his team have always been super supportive, knowledgeable, and responsive as they've helped us navigate legal hurdles. When I was just 18 years old, I was in an unfortunate car accident. Mr. Flachs, through his guidance and counsel, ensured that I received the high-quality medical care I needed. He personally assisted me through each step of the legal process, and was available to answer my questions. More recently, when my mother was in a car accident, Mr. Flachs relentlessly advocated on her behalf. My family and I have only great things to say about this firm and about Mr. Flachs and his team!

My case was complicated and tedious and required the utmost tenacity, intelligence, and resilience, all of which Mr. Flachs possessed with an unwavering commitment to building the strongest case possible. The risks that appeared along the way were offset by Mr. Flachs' determined belief and steadfast approach to leaving no stone unturned. The case eventually settled after a long process, including two failed mediations. With every step, Mr. Flachs dug in his heels deeper and kept fighting. For a personal injury lawsuit, you need a brilliant attorney like Mr. Flachs who is willing to go the distance without reservation. Connie Frigo
