The Tyrone Law Firm won a $545,000 verdict for their client against Clayton County, a county in Georgia. The jury verdict was three times the highest pre-trial offer to settle. A Clayton County Government employee, while driving a County van, pulled out in front of our client giving her no room to stop. In attempting to stop her car, her braking foot was broken. She sustained career-ending injuries that have significantly altered the course of her life. The injuries to her foot have required four surgeries to correct. Four years after the wreck she has fused toes, scar tissue on the sole of her foot and is unable to walk pain-free. Her doctors say that this pain is likely permanent. For a second degree black belt Karate instructor, this injury was devastating.
Her accident was preventable. The County employee was late, lost and was driving recklessly. You can try avoid reckless or aggressive driving in other drivers by employing the following techniques:
Get out of the way. Make every attempt to avoid reckless drivers. In cases like ours, unfortunately this wasn’t possible. Pull over or slow down to allow a reckless driver room.
Identify Alternate Routes. If you know a certain road has heavy traffic and aggressive or reckless drivers, try to find another, less traveled road.
Concentrate. Do not talk on the phone, eat or drink. Pay attention to the task at hand, and you will be more likely to spot a reckless driver in time to avoid them.
Do not make frequent lane changes, express frustration or speed to respond to a reckless driver near you. Slow down, give them room, or find an alternate route.
For our client, there was no warning that the reckless driver was about to pull out in front of her car. Fortunately we were able to hold Clayton County accountable to help make sure this doesn’t happen to anyone else.
