Kalka & Baer LLC has settled an accident case for $1, 000, 000 involving
a client who suffered serious injuries and was forced to undergo a double
amputation. The client, an employee for garbage disposal company, American
Disposal Services, had been standing on the platform located just behind
the commercial ADS truck, a 2004 Kenworth Construction vehicle. The vehicle
had been stopped in the southbound lane in the vicinity of 5384 Austell
Road, with the emergency indicators flashing.
A reckless driver in a 2009 Dodge Caliber collided into the truck, traveling
at full speed. The client was pinned between the front of the Dodge and
the Kenworth Construction truck, and was forced into the heap in the truck,
where sustained serious injuries.
Reports indicate that other witnesses had noticed the driver zipping by
too quickly. The driver admitted that he had been distracted at the time
of the incident; he was in the process of looking down to retrieve his
cup of coffee and did not notice the client or the stopped vehicle until
he was directly behind. Further reports indicate that the driver had been
traveling at full speed at the time and just before impact,
Kalka & Baer, LLC’s client was immediately taken to Grady Memorial
Hospital for treatment. The client suffered head injuries, an injury to
his torso, and remained in a coma for a week. Doctors had no choice but
to amputate both of his legs. In the personal injury claim, he sought
compensation for medical treatment, pain and suffering, and wages lost
due to his inability to continue working. The client’s wife also
sought restitution for loss of companionship of her spouse.
