Our client was driving west on a four-lane road. She was stopped in traffic in the right-hand lane when another westbound driver slowed down for the upcoming stopped traffic.
However, the driver mistakenly believed the westbound traffic was about to move and did not come to a stop. Instead, the driver continued at the same speed and rear-ended our client’s vehicle while she was still stopped. The responding police cited the driver of the other vehicle at the scene for careless operation causing the car accident. Although the wreck occurred at a low speed, our client suffered neck injuries in the impact that ultimately required surgery.
She was employed as a social worker, and the injury made it very difficult and painful for her to perform her regular job duties. She felt uncertain about her future and faced mounting medical bills for her treatment.
The client contacted Attorney William Neblett of Neblett, Beard & Arsenault for help with her accident case. William talked with the client and helped her understand her rights in Louisiana and what to expect from the legal process.
Ultimately, the case settled for $500,000, and the client was thankful for William’s help and reassurance. The settlement helped compensate her for her injuries, medical bills, and lost wages, and she was happy to be able to move on with her life.
