THE VIRGINIA STATE BAR RULES OF PROFESSIONAL CONDUCT REQUIRE ALL ATTORNEYS TO MAKE THE FOLLOWING STATEMENT AND DISCLAIMER TO THEIR CASE RESULTS.

SETTLEMENTS AND VERDICTS IN ALL CASES DEPEND ON VARIOUS FACTORS AND CIRCUMSTANCES WHICH ARE UNIQUE TO EACH CASE. THEREFORE, PAST RESULTS IN CASES ARE NOT A GUARANTEE OR PREDICTION OF SIMILAR RESULTS IN FUTURE CASES WHICH THE ALLEN LAW FIRM AND ITS LAWYERS MAY UNDERTAKE.

Location: Confidential
Injuries: Catastrophic Injuries
Settlement: $47,500,000

The Allen Law Firm has secured the largest single-plaintiff settlement in Virginia history, totaling $47.5 million.

No portion of this settlement was structured. Upon information and belief, prior to this case, the largest personal injury case brought on behalf of a single plaintiff in Virginia resolved for $30 million.

Attorneys P. Christopher Guedri and Trent S. Kerns represented the plaintiff, a young person injured in an automobile accident through no fault of their own.

The injuries were catastrophic, including, among others: a burst fracture of their fourth thoracic vertebrae, a functional severance of their spinal cord at that level, resulting paraplegia, and a traumatic brain injury. The plaintiff had incurred medical expenses, as of the date of the mediation, of approximately $1.2 million. The plaintiff’s Life Care Plan had a present value of approximately $8 million.

Thanks to the compassionate advocacy on behalf of Allen & Allen, the plaintiff will experience an improved quality of life.

As the case was resolved on terms of strict confidentiality, no further information can be publicly disclosed.
