Rear-End Collision Due to Driver Negligence
Our client was a passenger in a car that was involved in a
rear-end accident on Flat Shoals Road in Dekalb County, GA. She was in the front passenger
seat of a car that was making a left hand turn into a driveway, when another
driver slammed into the back of the vehicle. The driver at fault had been
following too closely and took their eyes off the road for a split second,
rear-ending the car that our client was in.
After the Accident
Immediately after the incident, our client felt pain in her lower back
and right ankle. She had to receive several chiropractic treatments before
going to several specialists, receiving multiple x-rays and MRIs, and
ultimately being told that she would have to receive reconstructive surgery
to fix the displaced talar body fracture in her ankle.
Obtaining a Successful Settlement
Attorney Caroline Owings at Kalka & Baer, LLC was able to demonstrate negligence on the part
of the driver who rear-ended the car. By presenting the extensive costs
of her medical bills, both past and future, and demonstrating how our
client has endured both mental and physical pain and suffering, Attorney
Owings recovered a substantial $100,000 settlement to cover all of these expenses.
