While traveling westbound on I-16 in the left lane, our client was struck by a vehicle that spun out of control from the right lane. The driver of the other vehicle had been driving too fast on the wet roadways and hydroplaned, causing them to drift across the highway uncontrollably. Additionally, it was discovered that their tire tread was insufficient due to a lack of proper maintenance on the part of the driver.
When the car collided with our client, it caused all of her airbags to deploy and resulted in multiple fractures in her leg. The medical procedures and recovery time resulting from these fractures forced her to have to remain in the hospital from December 23, 2015 to January 8, 2016. She is still in a rehabilitation hospital where she is unable to walk without assistance.
By proving negligence on the part of the other driver for failing to maintain their car and for driving erratically, our Atlanta personal injury attorneys recovered a $200,000 settlement. This will cover the costs of her medical bills and help compensate for some of the pain and suffering she has had to deal with in the aftermath of the accident.
