We have represented victims involved in on-the-job railroad accident, car accidents, truck wrecks, motorcycle accidents, faulty product injuries, medical malpractice and related wrongful death claims.
In October of 2000, our Virginia injury law firm, and co-counsel, obtained

(60 million dollars, including interest). In January of 2012, the firm obtained a
21 Million Dollar structured settlement

prestigious international group of law firms, called Primerus
