Abrams Landau client gets new home improvements

Triathlon Trial Lawyer Doug Landau of Abrams Landau, Ltd. shown at his client’s home, prior to improvements being made by the Comp Insurance Company. As the Virginia Triathlon Series last event went by the client’s Spotsylvania home, Landau (shown here with his race number still on his arm !) made his third visit to this brain injury client and his family. Landau ended up winning his age group in the Virginia Triathlon Series as well as winning this brain injured client’s case.



Under Virginia Code, if the treating doctor finds it medically necessary, the Commission can require the employer (and its insurance company) to pay for such things as:

bedside lifts,

adjustable beds,

and modification of the employee’s home

these “modifications” can include such things as:




and doorway alterations,

There is a limit of $25,000 for these items and modifications, but Herndon Lawyer Landau points out that this investment can significantly improve an injured worker’s home. Perhaps more importantly, Super Lawyer Doug Landau notes that ramps, handrails, lifts and other modifications can make a disabled worker’s home safer. And making a home safer helps Abrams Landau clients AND their families.

    Thank you for the information. What I need is a bathtub that I can get into and fit. I have a garden tub, but left leg cannot get in or out of it. I also cannot stretch or BEND my leg to fit into it. I have tried. it is very dangerous as I have no handrails to hold on to. When I tried I had to sit in the tub with my left leg out of the tub braced against the wall. A long oblong, regular tub with be a great help to me with handles on the walls and tub side. I need someone to come in and show me what I need and how it would help me to bath properly. Sometimes the only thing that can relax my leg and make me feel better is a long hot tub soak. I can’t do that now.

    Tell what I have to do to get this to happen. As always very happy and proud to hear of Doug’s work and accomplishments.

    I also have second bath room with a large shower. The problem with that is I do not have hand grips to hold on to to get in and out. Every time I take a shower I worry if I can get out of the shower stall without losing my balance and not having anything to hold on to. Any assistance in getting these problems solved would increase my safety and life. Always, Anna M
