$1,550,000 Settlement – Car Crash Resulting in Severe Injuries

Shiver Hamilton settled a case involving a distracted driver that rear-ended our client while she was lawfully stopped in traffic in Canton, Georgia. Our client suffered a shoulder injury in the crash that ultimately resulted in lung complications.  Though liability was initially disputed by the at-fault driver, Shiver Hamilton spoke with first responders and witnesses to the crash and, through the litigation and multiple depositions, exposed that his fault could not be explained away. Shiver Hamilton pursued all available insurance which included the at-fault driver’s insurance and his parent’s insurance, not to mention insurance belonging to our client through her underinsured motorist coverage. Shiver Hamilton recovered just over $1.5 million for our client.
