Atlanta, GA (October 11, 2018) – At approximately 8:20 PM on Thursday a major four-car accident took place in the 700 block of Ponce De Leon Road in Atlanta.
The accident resulted in the total demolition of two sedans, one mini-van, and one work van this evening. At this point it is still unclear how the accident was caused and investigators are still on the scene trying to make that determination. Fire and Rescue crews were also present. At least one injured party was taken out on a stretcher and taken to a local hospital for treatment. There is no word on his condition as of yet. Others who required medical attention were also treated.
The Georgia State Police have since had the roadway cleared and traffic is passing through once again.
Georgia Car Accidents Pain And Suffering
We wish a speedy recovery to all those who were injured in this vehicle collision.
If you have been injured in a traffic accident that was the result of another driver’s carelessness or negligence you are most likely an eligible candidate to file a lawsuit for pain and suffering. This is accomplished by seeking monetary compensation through the at-fault party’s insurance company. In order to do this, you will have to be able to prove that another party involved was the party at fault for the accident. Most people have heard the legal term “pain and suffering” before but what it really means and how a dollar amount is determined can be a bit of a grey area. It encompasses not only the obvious physical injuries that a person sustains during a motor vehicle accident but it also covers emotional aspects of a person’s well being. Psychological factors such as worry, inconvenience, insomnia, grief, and even a loss of “enjoyment in life” can all be factors that are taken into account with this type of lawsuit.
The dollar range on pain and suffering can range from a very tiny amount to numbers to large to discuss in polite company. The total dollar amount due the victim is usually calculated one of two ways; either by taking the total monetary value assigned to every aspect of the case and multiplying by a number between two and five, or using the per diem method. This popular method involves assigning a dollar amount to each day, say $10,000 and charging that amount for every single day that the victim is not operating physically and emotionally at 100%.
