Thankful for Our Team This Thanksgiving

This humble writer is of the mind that around Thanksgiving we as Americans are often at our best, in being intentional in celebrating what we are thankful for – in fact, regularly practicing gratitude has been shown to have countless benefits to our health, happiness, and more, as shown in this great Happier Human piece! But I digress…

Covid has, to both oversimplify and put it bluntly, stunk. So many of us now understand, far more acutely than ever before, how trying it can be to be isolated from loved ones, coworkers, human contact in general. But this has also served to shine a light on just how important these relationships are, and given many of us a renewed appreciation for the times we are able to be together.

While the Abrams Landau team has been predominantly remote since the onset of the pandemic, we have recently been easing back in to more of a physical presence. Last week was particularly special, as *nearly* the whole team (we missed you Kristin and Lisa B!) was able to spend a day together at our office. While walking through our uniquely homey office, it felt a touch surreal to see each desk occupied with a real-life, walking talking person. And of course we capped it off with a small celebration of Lisa G’s birthday.

This year we are particularly thankful for the time spent together, both virtually and for those moments where we can be together again for work, lunch, and just a greater sense of normalcy. We are thankful for the opportunity to successfully represent so many neighbors who have been injured or disabled. And as always, we are thankful for you, the extended Abrams Landau family.

Wishing all a happy, healthy, safe, and joyous Thanksgiving, wherever you may be,

The Abrams Landau Team

Melissa, Lisa G, Beatriz, Andrew, and Rachel (and of course Doug, the wizard behind the drone-esque camera angle), celebrating Lisa’s birthday with lunch together, and of course cake. We love and appreciate all the times we are able to be together in the office.
We are always thankful to have been able to successfully represent so many injured and disabled neighbors from Herndon, Reston, and the area -- such as this happy Sterling client, whose husband was hospitalized for over 100 days and released home on oxygen. The Abrams Landau team was able to win his SSDI case earlier this summer.
Can I Change Jobs if I Am Hurt at Work?
Can you change jobs if you are hurt at work? Workers compensation laws can get complicated, and downright dizzying when trying to follow the variations from state to state. This is one of those questions we are asked fairly regularly. The short answer is, yes, but it depends.

Instead of a season opening “Tune up Tri,” Ina Nenninger & her merry race crew put on a reverse super sprint triathlon at George Mason University Freedom Fitness Center. This unusual "backwards triathlon" started with a 1.5 mile run, followed by a 4-mile bike ride, and ended with a 250M serpentine swim.

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) is the trade association for the world’s airlines, representing some 290 airlines, or 82% of total air traffic. According to the IATA’s own publication, burns and spills remain one of the most commonly reported cabin safety issues, resulting in injury and lost time from work. So our airline injury team was surprised to learn there were no specific guidelines to the handling of hot beverages in the vicinity of small children. By their very nature, children are impulsive, unpredictable, and often unaware of danger.

Call to Action! Support Our Mission to Prevent Traumatic Brain Injury to Kids
Our Lids on Kids program needs your help! This Virginia Trial Lawyers Foundation program aims to prevent traumatic brain injury to kids and promote lifelong safe biking habits.
