Our client was driving northbound along Highway 211 near Winder, GA. She
came to a stop in the far left lane with the intention of turning left
onto Dee Kennedy Road. As our client was waiting to turn, another driver
struck the rear of her vehicle. The at-fault driver behind our client
was following too closely and did not provide the proper amount of room
to stop. Liability was clear at the scene of the accident and the at-fault
driver, who rear-ended our client, was found to be at fault.
Understanding Our Client’s Back and Neck Injuries
In the weeks and months following the accident, our client started to experience
neck and back pain. She had previously undergone a surgical procedure
for chronic neck pain, so her neck was in a more fragile state to begin
with. The injuries that were sustained as a result of the accident were
still deemed to be the responsibility of the other driver, regardless
of her pre-existing condition.
Our client experienced relentless pain along her neck, back, and left shoulder,
even reaching down to her legs. Though she tried physical therapy for
several months, after multiple doctor’s opinions, surgery became
necessary to repair her cervical fusion. Even after this procedure, she
experienced continued pain and an MRI revealed a disc extrusion was damaging
nerves in her back. She underwent a second surgery and is now participating
in intensive physical therapy as she continues to recover.
By determining that the other driver was solely at fault for the
car accident and through a thorough investigation of the case, Kalka & Baer, LLC
recovered a $350,000 settlement for our client. This will help to cover
the expenditures associated with her injuries, including surgical procedures,
physical therapy, doctor’s appointments, and MRIs, as well as any
future medical expenses. Additionally, this financial compensation is
intended to cover her pain and suffering in the aftermath of the accident.
