Craig has tried to verdict and settled numerous personal injury cases resulting in awards exceeding a million dollars for his clients. According to Virginia Lawyer’s Weekly, a settlement Craig obtained in a workers’ compensation case was more than twice the largest workers’ compensation settlement previously reported in Virginia.
