Some people on the roadway drive very aggressively. This leads to a lot of tailgating. You have been there. The guy behind you thinks that if he can go one mile per hour faster he will get to where he is going faster. This results in the guy riding your bumper at 65 MPH. Up ahead, traffic is coming to an abrupt stop due to the negligent actions of some guy just like the one behind you now. You put on your breaks and BAM. This jerk slams into you at 60 MPH.
The rear end of your car is now totaled and no one is going anywhere fast. You think about getting out and you try. You cannot because your lower back and neck have locked up. Thanks to the negligent tailgating, otherwise known in Georgia as following too closely, you now have a bulging disc in your cervical spine / neck. You can’t sleep. You can’t work. You can’t play with your kids. You really can’t do much of anything without being in excruciating pain as a result of this tailgater. Your orthopedic doctor says surgery is an option, but tries to first deal with the pain through pre-surgical alternatives such as steroid shots and nerve ending ablations.
You are missing work. You cannot do as much around the house as you used to be able to all because of Mr. Tailgater. Mr. Tailgater should have to pay for his wrongful actions through his automobile insurance carrier. Mr. Tailgater’s insurance provider refuses to pay your bills and try to make it look like you caused the accident. I know you think, well he hit me from behind so it’s a done deal. Don’t be naïve. Insurance companies will gladly assassinate your character to prevent paying one extra dollar. Call Ben F. Windham, P.C. first. We will aggressively litigate your case and unlike many of our colleagues, will actually go to trial if Mr. Tailgater’s auto insurance carrier will not take responsibility for his negligent actions.
