As we all know, there is a myriad of different contexts in which we can experience pain and suffering, which can be physical as well as emotional. From the new problems with technology brought on by an increasingly modern and complex society, to medical and environmental dangers that have been around for ages, there is no shortage of potential sources of injury. In such a situation, it would be wise to contact an expert personal injury attorney at 617-787-3700.
Because of all these potential sources of liability, lawyers must be equipped to handle a range of difference cases. According to Los Angeles-based attorney Brian Virag, the most recent string of cases that has forced him to adapt to a new kind of legal situation has involved bed bugs. At first, Mr. Virag was skeptical. But after seeing the number of cases he was receiving, as well as the legitimacy of the pain and suffering to his clients resulting from bed bugs, he decided to pursue these cases aggressively.
Mr. Virag has attracted potential clients for bed bug related claims by posting videos on Youtube. Over time, Mr. Virag has seen a great shift in a court’s willingness to accept these cases as legitimate, as well as a steady rise in verdicts and settlements he has been receiving on such cases. For example, in 2017, he received settlements ranging from $100,000 to $550,000.
According to experts, the pattern that we are seeing with bed bug cases is very much akin to mold-related cases in the past and the recent cases involving ride-share accidents. Eventually, this field will become overrun, but for now bed bug cases seem to resonate with judges and juries, as lawyers have been able to effectively communicate the extent of the pain and suffering experienced by the plaintiffs.
