Jones & Swanson represents victims who have been injured in a variety
of circumstances. Our most common practice area revolves around motor
vehicle accidents in which one party suffers injuries as a result of another’s
negligence behind the wheel. Sometimes the vehicles involved are damaged
beyond recognition, but not all serious cases involve a totaled or severely
damaged car or truck. Even seemingly minor collisions can often times
leave victims with significant injuries that affect their everyday lives.
Recently, attorney M. Chase Swanson was able to resolve just such a case
for his client. Our client was involved in a rear-end accident in Cobb
County. While the damage to the vehicles was not extensive, the crash
unfortunately caused significant spinal and neurological damage that required
years of testing, physical therapy, and ultimately several surgical procedures.
This seemingly minor auto accident left our client with thousands of dollars
in medical expenses and cost valuable pain-free time with friends and family
After litigating the case and pushing it toward trial, Mr. Swanson was
able to successfully negotiate and resolve the claim for $325,000. Although
the settlement will not undo his client’s injuries, Mr. Swanson
was happy to be able to hold the responsible parties and their insurer
accountable for his client’s damages.
