Injuries Aren't Always Caused By High-Impact Crashes

Determining the value of a personal injury case can often times be challenging for plaintiff attorneys. It is a common misconception that only high-impact automobile crashes can lead to serious injuries, when in reality many of our clients have experienced life-altering injuries in lower-impact collisions.

Recently, a highly disputed injury auto accident case was resolved in Fulton County when the jury awarded $476,000 to an individual who was injured in a rear-impact crash that caused little property damage. The woman experienced a serious foot injury as a result of the crash, even though the actual damages to her vehicle were minor. Neither vehicle’s airbags deployed during the crash, but like in many cases the victim experienced injuries nonetheless. Her medical bills were substantial after undergoing multiple foot surgeries to repair her tendon, so she hired a personal injury law firm to represent her claim. Because a settlement amount agreeable to both parties of the claim could not be met, the case was taken before the Fulton County jury. More information about this case can be found online at www.dailyreportonline.com.

Not every motor vehicle accident claim will be the same. Some vehicles are totaled in the crash but passengers suffer little or no injuries, while others leave little property damage and serious injuries. If you or a loved one has been injured in an automobile accident, no matter how insignificant the property damage to vehicles involved, you may be entitled to monetary compensation for your medical bills.
