When a car crash happens due to the unsafe driving of another motorist, and there are young children in the innocent victim’s car, the level of fear and uncertainty is heightened, even when first responders are get to the scene quickly.

When a young mother was traveling in Northern Virginia traffic with her infant son in August of 2014, she was being hyper vigilant.

However, when an unsafe driver rear-ended her without any warning, she was terrified that something had happened to her son. Luckily, the child turned out to be fine after this Fairfax County car crash, but the mother was injured.

Police were called to the scene and the other driver — the Defendant — was cited with “Failure to Pay Full Time and Attention.”  The Defendant later appeared to contest the ticket but was found to be guilty as charged by the Fairfax County General District Court.

Due to injuries suffered at the time of this crash, EMS transported the injured mother to the hospital where she complained of headache, neck pain, upper back pain, and left shoulder pain.  She eventually was able to return to her normal activities and work. Damages claimed by the ABRAMS LANDAU team on her behalf in negotiations with the Defendant’s insurance company included:

  • medical damages
  • wage loss
  • mileage to the physical therapists & physician’s offices
  • monthly gym membership

The Abrams Landau team was able to settle the case before filing any lawsuit due to the evidence of clear liability and damages.
