Case Evaluation

Every case is unique, and each case will involve a variety of challenges and legal options.   While insurance companies rely on financial and statistical models to set their initial value for a claim, we investigate every aspect of each case to ensure our clients get results tailored to their individual circumstances and injuries.  We evaluate every case to see what the best options are for the client.  Not every case is suitable for litigation, and for some we will recommend settling the case on your own.  There are a variety of factors that should be considered in engaging counsel, but every case needs four key elements to be viable: damage, negligence, causation, and compensation.   How each factor is weighted depends on the specific facts and circumstances of your case.

posted by

Last week in Massachusetts, a court awarded $32 million in a case in which a 43-year-old shopper was killed inside a convenience store when an 81-year-old driver crashed through the front wall of the store at high speed. The decedent’s family sued the driver and the convenience store chain. It comes as no surprise that this extraordinarily high verdict would be newsworthy in any state, but a $32,000,000 verdict in a case like this is almost unimaginable in Virginia. The current record for...
