$1,250,000 Settlement for Personal Injury Victim
$1.25M Verdict for Victim of Severe Brain Trauma
On October 12, 2013 a client requested a non emergency transport company
transport our client from her home to the hospital. While in the process
of moving our client, who is a quadrapalegic and wheelchair bound, the
employees allowed the client to fall 8 feet vertically onto the cement,
striking her head. Not only did the medical transport employees not make
any effort to prevent or stop the fall from occurring, one of the employees
actually fell on top of our client with all of their weight as a result
of the incident.
As a result of this terrible accident, our client suffered severe brain
trauma which required emergency surgery and eventual hospitalization for
three weeks. She was eventually released home and care was given by her
family and the Visiting Nurses Association home health care staff. This
care included physical, speech and occupational therapy. She was unable
to even speak basic needs and could only nod "yes" or "no"
to communicate. The issues persisted for months. However, she miraculously
made a great recovery and ultimately stabilized with minimal neurological
$1,000,000.00 Wrongful Death Settlement
$1 Million Settlement for Wrongful Death Caused By Apartment Fire
Attorney Todd Henningsen recently settled a wrongful death case for $1
million on behalf of a client who lost her husband in an apartment fire.
The fire started at approximately 3:00 p.m. in the couple's basement
apartment, and the victim had last been sleeping in bed. The fire set
off the smoke alarms, which prompted the wife to check on her husband.
By that time, the smoke was too thick for her to see. When firefighters
arrived on the scene, the entire apartment had caught on fire.
The husband was eventually found in the bathroom; it was determined that
he had died of carbon monoxide poisoning. While investigating the accident,
it was discovered that the sleeping area did not have an appropriate means
of egress, which had prevented the rescue personnel from accessing the
room during the fire. Mr. Henningsen also discovered that there was a
furnace closet in the couple's apartment, which was a code violation
that allowed the fire to spread more rapidly.
After extensive negotiation, Mr. Henningsen was able to secure a $1 million
settlement for the victim's wife.
$400,000.00 Slip & Fall Accident Verdict
$400,000 Verdict for Victim Injured in a Slip and Fall at a Grocery Store
Henningsen Injury Attorneys, P.C. was recently able to secure a $400,000
verdict on behalf of a victim who was seriously injured in a slip and
fall while visiting a local grocery store. Mr. Chambers had just finished
his shift as a truck driver when he went to the Kroger Store to pick up
groceries. As he passed through the dairy aisle, he slipped and fell on
yogurt that had been left on the floor. He suffered extensive injuries
to his right shoulder and subsequently underwent two surgeries to repair
Unfortunately, the accident left him with a permanent impairment, causing
him to miss nearly two years of work. Mr. Henningsen was able to obtain
the surveillance video from the grocery store, which showed that an employee
had failed to clean up the yogurt. Despite this evidence, Kroger was unwilling
to accept responsibility. In fact, the company only offered Mr. Chambers
$15,000 at mediation. The settlement was immediately declined, and we
proceeded to trial. In the end, the jury returned a verdict for $400,000.
This verdict is thought to be a record in Georgia for this type of case
with these types of injuries.

$150,000.00 Motorcycle Accident Settlement
$150,000.00 Settlement Obtained for a Man Injured in a Motorcycle Accident.
Our client was driving his motorcycle on a rural road in Stockbridge, Georgia.
It was the night before Thanksgiving and he was on his way to a local
factory where he worked the overnight shift. As he was approaching a three
way intersection, a slower moving tractor trailer tow truck towing a box
truck was making a right turn in front of him. Our client, at some point,
moved into the opposite lane of travel and as he was going around the
truck, another driver pulled out from the roadway where the truck was
turning and struck our client nearly head on.
Because the wreck occurred in the lane of travel for vehicles going in
the opposite direction, our client was given a citation for improper passing.
There were three independent witnesses who saw the collision and their
testimony confirmed that our client was in the opposite lane of travel
when the collision occurred. Following the collision, our client was given
a citation for improper passing.
Due to his injuries, and prior to consulting with us, he made a decision
to pay the ticket rather than fight it in court. Unbeknownst to our client,
under Georgia law, when a ticket is simply paid, it is an admission of
guilt and that admission can be used against you in any civil case. Thus,
we were presented with a situation in which the defense could use the
fact that our client paid the ticket against him. Through diligent investigation
and development of the facts, we were able to show that our client should
not have been ticketed in the first place and the police officer simply
made the wrong call. As a result of diligent investigation and factual
development we were able to settle this Atlanta Personal Injury Case for
$140,000.00 Auto Accident Settlement
$140,000.00 Out Of Court Settlement For Injuries From A Georgia Auto Accident.
Georgia Personal Injury Lawyer, Todd Henningsen, settled a Personal Injury
Claim for $140,000.00 for a broken arm that resulted from a car accident.
When the client's family contacted Mr. Henningsen about what happened,
Mr. Henningsen met with the family and developed a plan of action to make
sure that his client received full compensation for her injury claim.
After investigating the accident and confirming that the other driver
was at fault for Failing to Yield the right of way, Mr. Henningsen settled
the liability portion of the claim pursuant to a limited liability release.
Mr. Henningsen then made a claim under the underinsured motorist provision
of his client's policy and was ultimately able to make a large recovery
on this significant Georgia Auto Accident claim.
$125,000.00 Car Accident Settlement
Atlanta Car Accident Personal Injury Case Settles For $125,000.00 Based
Upon Future Knee Surgery Estimate.
When this potential client called the Atlanta Personal Injury Lawyers at
our firm, she had previously been represented by another attorney, but
her case was going nowhere. She had not received the proper medical treatment
because she did not have health insurance and could not afford to pay
for the treatment on her own. After meeting with her, we quickly created
a treatment plan where she was seen by an orthopedist who would wait and
receive payment once the claim resolved. After a thorough examination
it became apparent that she needed surgeries on both knees. We submitted
these surgical estimates to the insurance carriers and after negotiations
were able to obtain the policy limits of the various insurance policies
for a total settlement of $125,000.00.
$125,000.00 Motorcycle Injury Settlement
$125,000.00 Settlement for a Man Injured in a Motorcycle Accident.
As he was driving his Motorcycle in Coweta County, our client put on his
right turn signal and slowed in order to make a right turn. As he was
in the process of making his right turn, he was struck from behind by
an inattentive and speeding driver. Although the force of the impact was
significant, our client was able to maintain control of his motorcycle
and bring it to a safe stop on the grassy shoulder on the side of the road.
Following the wreck, our client took himself to the emergency room and
was told to follow up with an orthopedist for his neck pain. The first
orthopedist treated the injury as a simple, "whiplash" type
of injury, but based upon the description of the pain from our client,
we decided that it was best that he get a second opinion. Our client received
a second opinion and following a series of diagnostic tests it was confirmed
that he had herniated disks in his neck and would require a surgery.
The other driver only had minimal liability limits, but because our client
had good underinsured motorist coverage we were able to secure a settlement
for the combined policy limits of $125,000.00. We are happy to report
that our client is doing much better since his surgery, but still has
lingering pain associated with this preventable accident.
$100,000.00 Passenger Injury Settlement
Passenger Makes Claim Against Driver And Receives $100,000.00 Limits.
Mr. Henningsen’s client was a passenger in a vehicle driven by a
drunk driver. The two were involved in a serious, single car accident
in which the client suffered a skull fracture. The insurance company argued
that the client assumed the risk that she would be injured by riding in
the car with a drunk driver and did not want to take responsibility. The
insurance company tried to offer less than their $100,000.00 policy limits
on the case. After repeated negotiations, Mr. Henningsen was able to convince
the insurance company to offer the full policy limits of $100,000.00

suit immediately. After protracted litigation, we were able to resolve
this Newton County auto accident claim for $95,000.00
