In other words, the Federal Government found Mr. K to be so disabled, that they granted him monthly disability benefits from his accumulated earnings and Social Security. However the Federal benefits were not enough to support a family.
Luckily, this injured person found their way to Abrams Landau, Ltd. With our vast legal knowledge and experience, we assisted this client through the claim process, litigation and finally mediation. This Herndon law firm was able to successfully settle this client’s claims against the at-fault driver without having to go to trial. After the parties had gone through the “Discovery’ process, they presented their case to a retired Circuit Court judge. The Mediation process enabled the injured driver to express the losses he sustained and show the evidence his lawyer, Doug Landau of the Abrams Landau law firm, would call upon at trial.
Some of the advantages of the Mediation were the savings of many thousands of dollars in expenses (primarily for calling Mr. K’s treating doctors to court to testify), and the fact that there would not be months or years waiting for post-trial motions and/or appeals. With the monies received at settlement, our client has been able to move forward and purchase a new home for him and his wife, where their children and grandchildren can visit and share future family memories. While we were not able to undo the physical injuries sustained, we were able to provide our client, and his family, a chance at a brighter future.
