Portner & Shure Law Firm Serving Maryland, Virginia & Washington D.C.


Portner & Shure recently won $82,000 for a client injured in a Virginia car accident. The case was set to head to trial, but our Senior Litigation Paralegal, Lora Hatton, managed to settle the case for our client before trial began. This was a high velocity accident where the Defendant made a left turn and crashed into the side of our client's vehicle. Our client was hit with such force that she was pushed sideways into a car in the next lane. Medical bills for our client totaled $30,000.00, which included a surgery to our client's shoulder. The insurance company initially offered only $25,000, which then caused us to file suit.
