Head-On Collision Resulting in Serious Hip Injuries
The Kalka Law Group’s client was driving west on Paces Ferry Road when another driver on the other side of the road hydroplaned and crossed over the double yellow line, colliding head on into his vehicle. His airbag deployed due to the severity of the SUV crashing into his sedan and he complained of injuries immediately following the accident. The negligent driver admitted that she lost control of her vehicle due to hydroplaning, but it is her duty to modify her driving according to weather conditions. She should have either been driving slower or using greater caution in the rain.
Effects of the Accident
Our client was self-employed prior to the crash, but after the incident he was unable to run his business at the same level. He tried to avoid surgery for the labrum tear on his right hip, but ultimately underwent arthroscopic surgery and had to go to physical therapy for 6 months following the procedure. Following surgery, our client decided to embark on a new career.
