Car Accident Case Results
$500 Thousand Rear-End Auto Collision – Lumbar Surgery-
$500K for lumbar surgery resulting from a rear-end auto collision. Our
client was stopped at a light when she was smashed from behind by a pharmaceutical
salesman traveling too quickly to his next appointment. Our client required
a lumbar fusion in order to correct excruciating back pain. Interesting
enough, the defendant’s lawyer tried to blame the need for surgery
on the fact that our client had been to the beach a few months after the
car collision and was knocked down by an ocean wave while swimming. This
is just another example of insurance companies and defense lawyers doing
and saying anything to avoid responsibility for paying totally legitimate
medical costs and needless pain and suffering.
$160 Thousand Auto Collision – Hit by DUI Driver-
$160K for minor soft tissue neck and back strain injuries after being hit
by a DUI driver. Our client had only $7,000 in chiropractic medical bills
and the defendant’s insurance coverage was only $50,000 but a rare
pre-trial settlement of $160K was paid over insurance policy limits by
Geico Ins. Co. due to the face that the defendant had multiple DUI’s
on her record and we were prepared to argue that the defendant was a continuing
threat to future motorists by her failure to adhere to several drinking
and driving warnings. As always, we fight hard for your right to enjoy
the highways and roadways free from reckless motorists.
$125 Thousand Rear-End Collision – Soft Tissue Back Injury-
$125K for rear end car collision causing shattered back car window and
soft tissue lower back injury. Defendant’s repeated warning from
police to fix his high suspension pickup truck caused a Cherokee county
jail to award $75K in punitive damages to deter him from such conduct
in the future.
$90 Thousand Soft Tissue Auto Wreck-
$90,000 Soft Tissue Auto Wreck
$240 Thousand Auto Collision – Disc Herniation-
$240K for disc herniation from auto collision involving DUI driver.
$180 Thousand – Hit & Run of Minor-
Our minor child client was playing ball in his apartment complex when he
chased the ball across the parking lot where an auto was traveling too
fast for conditions and hit out boy who then suffered a very serious fractured
leg. This was a great recovery considering the fact that the child darting
out and not looking where he was going was argued as significant contributory
negligence by the defense.
$112 Thousand Fractured Hip in AL – Plaintiff Partially at Fault-
$112,500 for pedestrian in auto collision for fractured hip where pedestrian
partially at fault for crossing busy road quickly and darting out into traffic.
$48 Thousand – Verdict for Auto Accident - Soft Tissue Injury-
Our client was rear-ended and had mild neck and back strain. However, the
insurance company only offered 2,000 to settle. Hartman – Imbriale
does not put up with low-ball offers from ruthless insurance companies,
so we filed suit and won a 48,000 verdict, which is 24 times the insurance
offer. Even thought trial is much much more work, Hartman – Imbriale
goes the extra mile for its clients.
$1.915 Million for a Car Accident Case-
In 2016, our car accident attorneys obtained maximum recovery in Bartow
County for two Cartersville ladies, all within 8 months of the collision.
They were hit by a careless driver who negligently pushed them into oncoming
traffic. Normally, this size recovery takes several years of battle with
stubborn insurance companies and their high-powered large law firm attorneys.
We were able to convince them to pay maximum dollars by showing our aggressive
representation early on. We were also able to increase our client’s
recovery by negotiating their medical bills down by over $200,000 , which
put more money in their pocket. Our clients suffered a fractured pelvis,
broken leg and nose. This was a catastrophic injury which caused one of
our clients to be hospitalized for over a month, but if you saw her today,
you would notice that she made a remarkable recovery, both physically
$100 Thousand Auto Collision – Herniated Disc-
$100K for auto collision causing herniated disc to lower back
