On January 21, 2013, Virginia Lawyer’s Weekly ranked Mr. Waterman’s $3,500,000.00 jury award as trying for 9th of “Virginia’s Largest Verdicts of 2012”. It was in the medical malpractice case of Shirley Frazier Burrell v. Riverside Hospital, Inc., et al., No. CL1101633F in Circuit Court for the City of Newport News, Virginia.
In the same issue, Virginia Lawyer’s Weekly also reported his $3,500,000.00 jury award more extensively under its “Verdicts & Settlement”. That caption was “Plaintiff claims hospital fall led to brain injury”.
