Usually an injured victim in a car crash case cannot collect more than the available insurance policy limits. However, with the negligent defendant’s insurance company paying thousands of dollars in excess of its insurance policy, the Herndon law Firm ABRAMS LANDAU once again found one of its injury cases on the front page of Lawyers Weekly.
What was of particular interest to the newspaper was the fact that Herndon Reston injury lawyer Doug Landau not only prevailed in getting a jury verdict WITH Pre-Judgment Interest, but he also was awarded taxable court costs, property damage and post-judgment interest. The experienced Virginia injury trial lawyer eventually collected interest on the interest for his disabled Spotsylvania client. In addition to the cover story, the Lawyers Weekly also rote up the Landau Law Shop verdict case report and published the actual pictures of the wreckage.
This was no "minor fender bender", "MIST case" ("minor impact, soft tissue" injury case), or "whiplash case." The Herndon Reston injury lawyer does not take on but the most serious injury cases, involving permanent injury, disability, scarring and surgical intervention. The Loudoun and Leesburg, Virginia disability injury law firm often refers minor injury and General District Court cases to other firms that take smaller cases or have a higher case volume. The firm invests time, staff and money in permanent injury and disability cases, and so it must be selective in those matters that it takes to trial.
