On July 8, 2019, Mr. Waterman prevailed at hearing over defense objection on Plaintiff’s Motion for Leave to Amend in the car crash case of Aarsbergen v. Oliver, No. CL1801084P-11 in Newport News Circuit Court. Grant of the Motion increased the vehicle accident victim’s ad damnum from $640,000.00 to $975,000.00, despite there only being $300,000.00 in insurance coverage for the offending motorist (thereby increasing the wrongdoer’s uninsured excess exposure) and jury trial already having been set.

Mr. Waterman’s law practice focuses on vehicle accidents, medical malpractice, and other cases of wrongful death and personal injury. Call him with your case!
