In 2010 Yeardley Love, a 22-year-old women’s lacrosse student-athlete at the University of Virginia was beaten to death by her ex-boyfriend George Huguely. The tragic case made national headlines and was of particular interest locally because Love was from Baltimore. Huguely was convicted of 2nd degree murder and sentenced to 23 years. Love’s mother and sister brought a wrongful death civil lawsuit against Huguely and last week a jury in Virginia awarded them $15 million. Unfortunately, that judgment will likely never be collected. In this post we will look at the wrongful death case and explain why collecting on the $15 million verdict will probably be impossible.

Murder of Yeardley Love

In 2010 Yeardley Love was a beautiful young student-athlete on the women’s lacrosse team at the University of Virginia. Love grew up outside Baltimore and was living in an apartment near UVA’s campus in Charlottesville. George Huguely was also 22 and played on the UVA men’s lacrosse team. Huguely grew up outside Washington, DC in Chevy Chase.

Our lawyers are investigating Zantac lawsuits in all 50 states.

The evidence is clear to our attorneys that Zantac is causing many types of cancer.  This page is about these suits and my prediction on the future of this litigation and what settlement amounts might look like for victims.  I am providing regular Zantac lawsuit updates in this space.  The last update was on February 24, 2022.

How Zantac Lawsuit Will Proceed

Elmiron eye damage and vision loss lawsuits are now in an MDL class action lawsuit that houses all federal court Elmiron lawsuits.  Our lawyers are seeking new victims who are seeing a settlement compensation payout for their injuries. The first trial in the MDL class action is now set for January 2023.

We believe these class action eye damage lawsuits will ultimately result in large settlements and, just as important, a new and strong warning that lets doctors and patients know of the risks of Elmiron.  Our Elmiron lawyers are handling these cases throughout the country.

So law firm is reviewing Elmiron vision loss lawsuits.  There are not a ton of cases out there.  But I think this will be the next big mass tort claim and I think it will lead to a class action settlement that gives victims a great deal of compensation. This is national litigation and our law firm is reviewing these cases in every state in the United States. If you have a claim, call our lawyers at 800-553-8082.  You can also reach out to me online.  There is no cost or fee unless our law firm gets a recovery for you.

This post is about calculating wrongful death settlement compensation payouts in Maryland. Our lawyers have handled scores of wrongful death malpractice lawsuits in Maryland and have developed a strong sense for what settlement amounts and jury payouts you can expect if you have a claim.

Wrongful Death Malpractice Settlement Amounts

What is the average settlement amount for wrongful death medical malpractice cases in Maryland and the District of Columbia? 

Our lawyers have handled scores of lawsuits where the primary injury was head injuries and headaches.  This page is about projecting settlement amounts and jury payouts in head injury and headache lawsuits

Mostly Subjective Injuries

I don’t get many headaches, a blessing I attribute to good hydration and genetic good fortune.  I’ve never had a traumatic head injury and have only had two concussions.  On the rare occasion that I do get headaches, they are debilitating. It is hard to enjoy life when you have anything north of a mild headache.

Miller & Zois’ clergy sexual abuse lawyers help victims of sexual abuse committed by clergy who abused their authority in the worst way imaginable.  These lawsuits are against not only church officials but against the churches themselves.  The crimes committed in sexual abuse cases do more than violate Maryland law.  They involve unimaginable cruelty and evil.

Why Our Lawyers Handle Sex Abuse Lawsuits

This is why our attorneys have sought out sex abuse cases. There is no question these are emotionally challenging cases for our entire legal team.  Our attorneys are human beings first.  We feel the pain of these victims.

The hernia mesh lawsuits have been litigated for years.  For victims seeking settlement compensation, it has been a never-ending road.  But with the court bouncing back from COVID, two trials are on the way that could be the bridge to a class action hernia mesh settlement to finally bring victims overdue settlement compensation for the harm done to them.

Over the last decade, countless individuals who underwent hernia repair surgeries subsequently suffered pain and serious injuries caused by a defective hernia mesh implant that was used in their procedure. There are currently thousands of hernia mesh lawsuits currently pending across the country and they have been consolidated into three separate class action MDLs.

Progress in all the hernia mesh class action MDLs got interrupted by the pandemic and resulting court closures. Now things are opening back up and it is shaping up to be an action-packed summer on the hernia mesh litigation front. In this post, we will look at the current status of each of the 3 separate hernia mesh MDLs and what to expect this summer as the first round of bellwether test trials get underway.

This page is about the 3M earplug lawsuit.  Our lawyers are handling these claims in all 50 states.

If you are a plaintiff in these lawsuits, you want to know when the 3M lawsuit will be settled, what the individual settlement amounts might be, and get the latest update in the class action.  I start with the latest 3M earplug lawsuit update and then get into the rest.

3m earplug litigation cost

March 15, 2022: The Wilkerson bellwether trial is underway. A few weeks ago, 3M filed a motion seeking to dismiss all claims on the grounds that Wilkerson failed to list the 3M lawsuit as an asset when he filed bankruptcy. Over the weekend, Judge Rogers issued an order denying the motion because 3M failed to show that Wilkerson intentionally concealed the 3M lawsuit in an effort to manipulate his bankruptcy proceedings. She also pointed out that the omission was irrelevant because Wilkerson’s bankruptcy was a Chp. 13 which proposed full repayment of his creditors.

Wrongful death lawsuits in Maryland are subject to a 3-year statute of limitations that runs from the date of death. In this post, we will look at wrongful death claims and this 3-year limitation deadline in more detail.
