The law firm’s client in the case was a 74-year-old woman who whose accident occurred in May 2010, in the intersection of Burnt Hickory Road and Due West Road. The woman, who was wearing her seat belt, was driving her small passenger car eastbound on Burnt Hickory Road when a teenage driver traveling southbound on Due West Road ran a red light and hit the driver’s side of the elderly woman’s vehicle. After the T-bone accident occurred, the woman had to be extracted from her car and transported by ambulance to WellStar Kennestone Hospital. The woman received a number of significant injuries that eventually required her to receive epidural steroid injections and surgical intervention.
Initially, the other driver denied using her cell phone at the time of the accident. Attorney Jones, however, did his due diligence and tracked down the cell phone usage logs for the teenager. Through those records, he discovered that the other driver had indeed sent and received multiple text messages in the moments leading up to the incident. This information combined with other evidence recovered by the lawyer led to the $450,000 settlement being successfully secured for the client. Furthermore, Attorney Jones was able to negotiate a Medicare lien reduction on the client’s behalf, which increased the amount of take-home monetary compensation that the victim was able to benefit from in her settlement.
Due to the thorough investigation completed by Attorney Jones and his staff, the car accident victim in this case was able to receive the financial recovery she rightfully deserved following her injuries. There are many individuals throughout the state of Georgia and elsewhere who try to save money by handling their own accident claims. This case, however, is a strong example of how a knowledgeable attorney can maximize a victim’s financial recovery. Because of their training and experience handling these types of claims and lawsuits, personal injury attorneys are typically much better-equipped to prove victims’ cases and obtain compensation on their behalf.
