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 The Kalka Law Group 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.
