$1,000,000 Settlement – Tractor-Trailer Driver Failed to Maintain Lane

Shiver Hamilton represented a woman struck by a tractor-trailer driver in Villa Rica, GA. The tractor-trailer failed to maintain his lane and allowed the back tires of his trailer to impact our client’s vehicle while she was at a complete stop. Despite the investigating officer’s determination that the tractor-trailer driver was at fault for the wreck, the insurance company initially denied fault for the wreck.

Our client required extensive treatment to her neck and back because of the wreck. After failing months of conservative treatment options, including physical therapy and trigger point injections, she ultimately required surgery. Shiver Hamilton diligently prepared the case for trial. Just days before trial, the insurance company offered the policy limits of $1,000,000.
