Personal injury Verdicts-Settlements

Brien Roche Law > Personal injury Verdicts-Settlements

These personal injury verdicts and settlements are all fact dependent and the results in any given case is entirely dependent on the facts and the law applicable to that case. No guarantee can be given as to the outcome in any particular case.

Cross Section of Personal Injury Verdicts and Settlements

The cases reflected in this section cover a cross section of injury cases from auto accidents to product liability claims to medical malpractice cases to premises liability claims in most of the courts in Northern Virginia and also in Washington DC. Whether the cases were tried to conclusion or settled they reflect the efforts of Brien Roche and his staff to maximize the recovery for the client and giving priority to the client’s interest.

Personal Injury Verdicts-Settlements: Prepared For Trial

All of these cases were hard fought and also reflect the willingness of the insurance industry to put the plaintiff and counsel to the test to see if they are in fact prepared and willing to take the case to trial. There is never an assurance that the insurance company will increase offers of settlement as the case proceeds to trial and as such it becomes the judgment of counsel with the consent of the client to determine whether the case is one to try or one to settle. That cooperative attitude is what helps to maximize the recovery for the client.
