CASES ILLUSTRATING RESULTS IN SENIOR SHUTTLE VAN ACCIDENTS, TRUCK ACCIDENTS AND DUI CAUSED ACCIDENTS
Senior Shuttle Van / Senior Transport Bus / Fatality
My elderly client was riding in a senior shuttle bus (or “non emergency transport”) when the driver stopped suddenly in traffic near Piedmont Hospital in Atlanta. She was violently thrown to the shuttle van floor. Her legs and hips were fractured. She sustained a severe head injury. After three months of fighting in ICU, she died from her injuries at Grady Hospital. The shuttle van driver had not belted her into her wheelchair.
Truck Accident / Tractor Trailer Accident
My client was side swiped by a tractor trailer (semi truck) on I285 in Dekalb County. She suffered lower back injuries, required months of physical therapy and was recommended for spinal surgery to her lumbar. The trucking company blamed her for the accident, accused her of exaggerating her symptoms and unfairly sought to portray her as an overweight party girl. My work revealed that the tractor trailer company failed to follow any safety regulations and had operated unsafely in the past.
Drunk Driver Caused Accident / DUI Driver
My client was rear ended by a DUI (drunk) driver as she waited for a traffic light. The intoxicated driver fled the scene on a flat tire. The DUI driver was then arrested at a nearby Marta Station attempting to hide from the accident he caused. The case settled after I obtained police records and the Marta video which captured the drunk driver’s actions.
