Breit Cantor Grana Buckner Secures Highest Number of Million Dollar Settlements in Virginia in 2017, According to VLW
Courtney Sweasy—March 22, 2018
Breit Cantor Grana Buckner is proud to announce that we have secured the highest number of million-dollar settlements in Virginia in 2017, according to Virginia Lawyers Weekly. Winning these major settlements and verdicts for the clients we represent is a testament to our attorneys’ abilities to successfully navigate through serious personal injury cases and complex litigation. We would like to thank the lawyers and firms who entrusted us with their referrals and as their joint venture partners.
In Virginia Lawyers Weekly’s annual compilation, Breit Cantor Grana Buckner ’s settlements appear a total of 6 times, more than any other law firm on the list. Our highest settlement, which sits at #2 on the list at $15 million, involved a 47-year old man who was hit and paralyzed by a driver who had a seizure. While liability was hotly contested, we were able to secure a sizable win for our client.
Sitting at #8, our $5.187 million settlement was secured for the family of a 22-year old college student, who died during a dental procedure in a newly renovated dental office. During construction, the oxygen and nitrous oxide lines were accidentally switched, killing the man. Our attorneys also secured $5 million—at #9 on the list—for two intellectually disabled women who consented to abortions without due process. After an initial win and subsequent reversal, we were able to amend the complaint and proceed on a new theory that ultimately got our clients the settlement they needed.
In addition to the above, we also secured a medical malpractice settlement worth $3 million, #11 on the list, a personal injury settlement worth $2.5 million, #17 on the list, and another medical malpractice settlement worth $1.25 million, #43 on the list.
