Client Experiences Neck Pain After Rear-End Accident
Our client was driving her vehicle on Cobb Parkway in Marietta, GA when
she was struck from behind by another car. There were three cars involved
in the collision, and the accident was due to the first driver’s
negligence. The first car was following too closely to the car in front
of them, which caused them to rear-end them. This propelled the car in
front to hit our client’s car. The police officer at the scene of
the crash cited the first driver for following too closely and they were
shown to be at fault.
Injuries Sustained and Medical Treatment
In the days following the accident, our client began experiencing pain
and tingling throughout her body. After being evaluated by a Non-Surgical
Orthopedics specialist, she had an MRI which revealed herniated and degenerated
discs, as well as a rotator cuff sprain in her shoulder. Starting with
physical therapy first, she ended up having to resort to epidural steroid
injection treatments. Ultimately the pain would not subside and her doctor
referred her to a back pain specialist, where she underwent a surgical
procedure known as a cervical discectomy. This finally allowed her neck
to be free of pain.
Recovering a Positive Settlement
Attorney Matthew Broun at Kalka & Baer, LLC obtained a $250,000 settlement for his client
by proving negligence on the part of the driver who rear-ended the first
car. Our client had incurred extensive medical bills and spent months
dealing with the pain of her injuries, which this financial compensation covered.
