One of our own attorneys makes it onto the 2007 list of Virginia’s largest verdicts.

Posted on Mar 02, 2008

At Shapiro & Appleton& Duffan, we pride ourselves on years of experience handling various personal injury matters.  We are proud to announce that one of our own attorneys, James Lewis, was recognized by Virginia Lawyers Weekly obtaining one of Virginia’s largest verdicts in 2007. 

Jim’s case involved a medical malpractice claim for injuries inflicted upon the plaintiff, an infant, during a difficulty delivery.  The delivery resulted in permanent injury to the plaintiff’s shoulder and arm.  A Virginia Beach Circuit Court Jury awarded $1.75 million, the medical malpractice cap at the time of the injury to the plaintiff and an additional $137,224 to the plaintiff’s mother.


At our firm we handle personal injury matters involving millions of dollars in damages as well as claims involving smaller amounts.  Despite the differences in the injuries and damages, we treat all of our clients with the same level of attention and care.  If you have been involved in an accident or other personal injury matter, check out our website.  Here you will find a great deal of information about our attorneys and the types of cases we handle.
