Good Samaritan Client Rear Ended in Car Accident

The Derrick Law Firm recently settled a claim for our client who was involved and injured in an auto accident on East Secondary Road 134.

It was a cold, dreary dusk in January 2016, and our client noticed a prior collison off the side of the road. In an attempt to help, our client slowed down to pull off the highway when a car behind her rear-ended her car.

The driver was cited for too fast for conditions but our client was noted as a contributor to the accident because it was thought she was parked in the roadway.

The Derrick Law Firm filed suit on this case and took depositions to prove our client was not at fault for her injuries. In the accident, she suffered a cervical and lumbar strain and felt a decreased range of motion in her neck and back. She completed physical therapy and was able to recover 100%.

This case was settled and was favorable for our client.
