Verdicts and Settlements
Here are some of our recent successes in securing settlements or judgments in our clients’ favor.
Non-Emergency Medical Transport Accident
Client fell after NEMT employees negligently placed her into her wheelchair, causing her to fall out immediately after the employees released her. Client’s fall resulted in her right hip fracture, surgery (an open reduction and internal fixation), hospitalization, and rehabilitation. (DeKalb County State Court).
Building Siding Collapse
Client was violently struck on the head and shoulder with a concrete slab, which had disconnected from the defendant’s building structure. Client suffered life-changing, permanent injuries, to her brain, head, arm, shoulder, wrist, and back. (DeKalb County State Court).
Slip and Fall in Store
Client slipped in water while walking through the defendant’s store. Client’s injury resulted in a lumbar intervertebral disc without myelopathy. After conservative treatment, which included physical therapy and epidural steroid injections, did not relieve her symptoms, the client underwent a lumbar interbody fusion. The surgery was successful, and the client was able to return to work with a 23 percent impairment rating. (Cobb County State Court).
Crushed Heel by Motor Vehicle Collision
Our client was hit head-on by a distracted driver while traveling through metro Atlanta. The collision caused a severely comminuted and impacted calcaneal fracture with marked depression of the posterior subtalar facet and extension into the sustentaculum, medial facet and calcaneal cuboid articulation. Additionally, the client’s scan showed a fibrous calcaneal navicular coalition. The client underwent an ORIF, or Open Reduction Internal Fixation. This procedure entailed surgically repairing the fractured bone with the use of plates and screws or an intramedullary (IM) rod to stabilize the bone. (Fulton County State Court).
