Attorney Andrew Jones is well known in the Cobb County community for representing victims injured when involved in automobile wrecks across the state of Georgia. While multiple-vehicle crashes can be extremely dangerous, those involving pedestrians walking near vehicles usually result in more severe injuries. This is due to the lack of protection around the pedestrian compared to the thousands of pounds of metal they are struck by.
In December of 2011, a crash involving a pedestrian and a moving vehicle occurred at Town Center Mall in Kennesaw, Georgia. A 79-year-old woman was walking to her vehicle in the parking lot when a vehicle backing out of a space struck her in the right leg. Following the incident, the victim was taken directly to Wellstar Kennestone Hospital and later required knee replacement surgery.
Fortunately, the victim contacted Jones & Swanson to request aid in gaining compensation for her injuries. Because the driver of the vehicle failed to maintain a proper lookout, Attorney Andrew Jones brought forth an injury claim. Like in many cases similar to this in which an elderly victim is injured, there was pre-existing pathology in the woman’s knee. The opposing party attempted to blame the injury on this pre-existing condition, but Mr. Jones was able to use a doctor’s statement to prove that this was untrue. The knee replacement surgery would not have been necessary had the victim not been involved in a pedestrian crash.
Fortunately, Mr. Jones was able to receive the maximum limits from the liability carrier. The claim was ultimately settled for $177,500. This amount was deemed satisfactory by the client and she was able to use the funds for her expenses.
