Our client was driving west on a four-lane road. She was stopped in traffic, sitting in the right-hand lane, and another driver, also traveling west, had 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.
Rear-End Accident Causes Serious Neck Injuries
Although the wreck occurred at a low speed, our client suffered very severe neck injuries in the impact and saw a doctor to begin treatment. Ultimately, she required surgery to help with her ongoing neck issues. After the accident, she was in a lot of pain, and she was worried about returning to work. 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.
