The Settlement:

The Alabama automobile accident lawyers of the Gartlan Injury Law in Dothan settled an automobile accident lawsuit with a national automobile insurance company that had been filed in an Alabama Court on behalf of a nice, hard working and honest Alabama woman that suffered personal injury and property damage when she was stopped in her vehicle in a school zone due to an automobile wreck in front of her, and was rear ended by another automobile being driven by an un-attentive and negligent driver. The settlement was almost three (3) times the amount offered by the National Automobile Insurance Company prior to the automobile wreck lawsuit being filed.

The Personal Injuries:

After the automobile collision, the Alabama woman carried on the obligations of her day and went home. Initially, after the impact of the car crash, she was offered an ambulance ride to the local emergency room. The Alabama woman felt shaken-up and sore. However, she did not believe there were any serious injuries requiring immediate medical attention, and she believed she could tough it out with ice, heat, over the counter medications and rest. Once at home using the aforementioned methods, the Alabama woman realized she was suffering extensive back and neck pain, as well as headaches and anxiety. She then obtained the necessary treatment.
