Atlanta Personal Injury Lawyer,
Todd Henningsen, just recently settled his client's Injury Claim for $140,000.00. The
car accident occurred in DeKalb County, when another driver failed to yield the right
of way and made a left turn directly in front of our client's oncoming
vehicle. Our client tried to take evasive action, but the wreck proved
impossible to avoid. The police were summoned to the scene and the other
driver was cited for Failure to Yield in violation O.C.G.A. section 40-6-73.
Our client was taken from the scene via ambulance to the emergency room
where she was diagnosed with a fractured ulna and radius in her arm. After
being released from the emergency room, she followed up with an orthopedist
who determined that she would benefit from a surgery to repair her arm.
After she underwent surgery, the client's family contacted Mr. Henningsen
and he met with the client that weekend to develop a plan of action.
Following physical therapy for her arm, the client was still experiencing
problems so she was seen by an occupational therapist who opined that
she may have a permanent injury. In addition to seeing the occupational
therapist, the client also followed back up with her orthopedist who determined
that some of the pain might be alleviated by a second surgery to remove
the instrumentation in her arm. Due to her pain levels the client agreed
to undergo the second surgery which dramatically decreased the pain levels
in her arm.
Mr. Henningsen was able to resolve the liability portion of the Accident
Claim pursuant to a limited liability release and then proceeded to recover
the remaining money from the underinsured motorist coverage that was provided
to the client. Fortunately, this client had a large underinsured motorist
policy which allowed us to move forward with a large settlement for this,
very deserving client.
