Norfolk, VA Truck Accident Attorneys – How to Handle a Catastrophic Accident
Not all attorneys are created equal. Some attorneys have had experience handling the biggest cases with the most serious injuries such as traumatic brain injury and death. If you or a loved one has suffered an extremely serious injury in a motor vehicle accident it is critically important to find an attorney who knows what they’re doing in those cases.
The fact that a lawyer achieved a great result in a past case is no indication that they will be able to get the same kind of result for you as every case stands on its own facts. In 2010 John Cooper of Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers obtained the largest settlement of any wrongful death case in Virginia in that year as reported by the state’s main attorney publication the Virginia Lawyers Weekly.

This case was also the largest automobile accident-related settlement in the state in 2010. The result was $3.5 million for a child who was left without a father when he was killed as a passenger in a car that was struck by a dump truck.
The car wreck resulted in a fiery crash and the father was not able to get out of the vehicle. Tragically, he perished. The case was handled in the Portsmouth, Virginia Circuit Court and was resolved just before trial at mediation.
In the past John Cooper was also on a team of attorneys who handled what remains as the largest mild traumatic brain injury verdict in Virginia and possibly the entire U.S. That result was over $45 million plus interest and occurred in a Manassas, Virginia courtroom. The huge jury result was on behalf of a man who had suffered a closed head injury and orthopedic injuries when a Norfolk Southern train ran into his place of business after a derailment.
Over the decades the attorneys at Cooper Hurley have handled numerous catastrophic injury cases including accidents involving big trucks. We know what it takes to strive for the best possible result for our clients in these hard-fought big cases.
