Heading north on Highway 293 in Emerson, GA, our clients were in their sedan waiting to make a right turn when they were hit from behind by a box truck. The box truck slammed into our client’s vehicle, injuring both the vehicle’s driver and passenger. There was a lack of care on the part of the box truck driver in which the truck driver that could have stopped in time to avoid the collision. Tony Kalka of The Kalka Law Group was able to prove that both truck drivers were to blame for running into our client’s car.
Injuries Sustained by Our Two Clients After the Accident
Immediately both the driver and passenger of the vehicle went to the emergency room where they complained of symptoms including neck pain, headaches, dizziness, nausea, and back pain. Both the driver and passenger were sent home and told to report back if they experienced any worsening symptoms, which they both did in the months to come.
The driver had to undergo chiropractic care, corticosteroid injections, numerous MRIs, and physical therapy for the injuries she sustained to her shoulder and her back. It was also discovered that our client’s cervical disc prolapse resulted in a 7% whole person impairment, potentially shortening her life expectancy and causing extreme pain and suffering. The passenger also endured serious back injuries resulting in tests and treatment, including CT scans, x-rays, chiropractic care, joint mobilization, and time spent in a back brace. It is recommended that both individuals undergo surgery at some point in the future to properly repair their injuries.
