Virginia Personal Injury Trial Lawyers

At Lichtenstein Law Group PLC, we deal in worst-case scenarios. Our clients have often suffered excruciating, horrific injuries and prior to our involvement are often being insulted with miniscule settlement offers that would barely put a dent in their doctor’s bills. Clients come to us because they need a champion in their corner — a catastrophic injury litigation team that will hold the at-fault parties responsible and make them pay for the hurt they have caused.

And pay they do. Each individual case is different, but with almost a century of experience in the courtroom, our personal injury trial attorneys have secured millions of dollars of recovery for our clients, across many different kinds of personal injury cases.

Our catastrophic injury trial attorneys are well-known and well-regarded throughout the Virginia legal community and across the United States as among the top trial lawyers in the country. Firm founder John E. Lichtenstein has served as President of the Virginia Trial Lawyers Association, and has been selected as a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers and the International Academy of Trial Lawyers, prestigious invitation-only groups limited to the top one percent of trial lawyers in the United States and Canada.

If you are trying to cope with a catastrophic injury and fear you are trapped in a worst-case scenario, contact the dedicated Virginia personal injury trial lawyers at Lichtenstein Law Group PLC. Schedule a free consultation with our litigation team today, and let us show you that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

Types of Personal Injury Cases We Handle

Our firm does not plow through personal injury cases to secure quick settlements. Instead, our personal injury trial lawyers focus on arguing – and winning – often the most serious and catastrophic injury cases in a court of law. Our clients have been forced to deal with life-altering accidents that caused traumatic brain injuries (TBI), spinal cord injuries (SCI), severe broken bones, and even progression of cancer due to misdiagnosis, for example.

Our firm has extensive experience with litigation involving these types of serious and catastrophic injuries, including those caused by:

When you have been the victim of a life-changing accident, it can take everything you have just to get through the day. That’s why you need a personal injury attorney who will go above and beyond to manage the details of your case and work tirelessly to prepare your case for trial.

Types of Compensation You May Pursue for Catastrophic Injuries

Catastrophic injuries change a person’s life and his or her family’s lives forever. With skyrocketing medical bills and the inability to work to bring more money in, accident victims often find themselves deeper and deeper in debt.

When we prepare your case for trial, we have the option of demanding several types of compensation, including:

  • Payment of your past and future medical bills
  • Compensation for your lost income and for future wages
  • Damage to your property, such as in the case of a car accident
  • Compensation for your pain and suffering
  • Punitive damages to punish the at-fault party for particularly egregious behavior

Cases involving relatively minor injuries settle fairly quickly out of court. Unfortunately, catastrophic injury cases are extremely complicated, and many victims do not receive the compensation they deserve from insurance companies unless they have trial lawyers willing and capable of taking their case to court. Then and usually only then do insurance companies begin to place full and fair value on an individual case.

At Lichtenstein Law Group PLC, we won’t let large insurance companies and massive corporations drag out your case with the intent of forcing you to give up. Instead, our skilled attorneys will aggressively prepare your catastrophic injury case for trial. And if that hard work of investigation and preparation for trial causes the other side to extend a full settlement offer before we set foot in the courtroom, we’ll take that as a sign of success, too. Verdict or settlement – the only thing that matters is that you get full and fair compensation for your injuries.

We can help when so much is at stake.

How Our Personal Injury Attorneys Are Different

How Our Personal Injury Attorneys Are Different
  • We focus on quality, not quantity. We can’t take every case that comes through our doors. Instead, we focus on serving clients who have suffered extremely serious injuries and need intense legal representation.
  • We are trial lawyers first. We don’t take on your catastrophic injury case just to settle it. We take your case because we know we can argue it before a judge and jury in court. If our in-depth trial preparation rattles the other side into offering a full settlement, we know it is based on how strong your case is, developed through our investigation, legal research and case handling.
  • We have the resources to prepare for a long battle. There is no doubt that lawsuits are expensive, and we take on personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis, meaning we don’t collect money from you unless we win. Because of our past success, our firm has the ability to stand strong against deep-pocketed corporations.
  • We have the experience and connections you need. With almost 100 years of courtroom experience among us, our attorneys know how to track down and document the evidence in your case. We are also skilled at drawing information out of eyewitnesses, and we have a large network of highly credentialed expert witnesses with particular expertise involved in your case.
  • We know juries. Just like every case is unique, every jury is different. We have considerable experience with jury research, and we employ several different techniques in crafting the narrative of your case so a jury can understand why it is so important for those responsible to be held accountable, and to understand and return a proper verdict that reflects the seriousness and severity of your injuries and losses.
