Doug Landau once again attended the VTLA Advanced Auto Practice Retreat at The Boar’s Head Inn, Charlottesville, Virginia. Landau has previously attended and been a presenter at this “by invitation only” program. Topic covered have included: the use of nurse consultants, demonstrative exhibits, Traumatic Brain Injury, Permanent Scarring, Pain and Suffering, Life Care Planning and Chronic Pain, Proof of Pain at Trial (by Herndon Reston area injury lawyer Doug Landau !), Chronic Pain Management, Hematoma Impact on Nerves, Reflex Sympathy Dystrophy (“RSD”) otherwise known as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, Burns and Wounds, Ostomy/Ileostomy Pain, Severe Fracture Pain, Working with Adjusters, Getting fairer results for the Property Damage claims and computer programming for presentation of evidence at mediation, arbitration and trial. Doug Landau came away from the weekend meeting with a number of “golden nuggets” as some of the top trial lawyers in Virginia were able to put their heads together, away from their offices, and focus on trends and tactics that can help injured and disabled clients and their families. A long-time VTLA member, Landau is shown here with Allen, Allen, Allen & Allen Charlottesville Office managing partner and friend Matt Murray.
