The firm’s $2.75 million settlement for a client who slipped and fell at an airport was the second-highest settlement in Virginia for a mild traumatic brain injury reported, statewide, in 2017.
This annual compilation recaps big settlements from across the Commonwealth during the past year. To qualify, a settlement must be for at least $1 million, be reached in calendar year 2017, and involve a dispute with a strong Virginia component.
