“While the multi-million dollar lawsuits get all the headlines, whether or not they are ultimately successful, it is workers comp claim that touch the lives of so many injured workers and their families that are never reported,” according to Herndon Reston area claimants’ comp attorney Doug Landau.  “Because these cases usually do not involve lawsuits, jury trials or millions of dollars, it seems as though the press is not interested and the plight of disabled workers and their families is largely unknown,” adds the ABRAMS LANDAU trial lawyer.  As Landau actually represents clients and has tried cases in Florida, he is familiar with Judge Mills’ statement on this subject:

  • Workers’ compensation is a very important field of the law, if not the most important.  It touches more lives than any other field of the law. It involves the payments of huge sums of money.  The welfare of human beings, the success of business, and the pocketbooks of consumers are affected daily by it.”  Judge E. R. Mills, Singletary v. Mangham Construction, 418 So.2d 1138 (Fla.1st DCA, 1982)
