A friend picked up the Jackson’s to take them to the airport heading for vacation. While on the Southeast expressway, the Jackson’s vehicle was struck from behind forcing the car to spin and strike a jersey barrier. The force of the impact caused Mr. Jackson’s seat to buckle and break. He was extremely shaken up. He felt immediate pain in his ribs and back from the seatbelt. EMS arrived and it was thought Mr. Jackson may have fractured some ribs because the pain was so intense. He could not breath easily. The ambulance transported Mr. Jackson to a local hospital where x-rays showed displaced fractures of the 9th and 10th ribs. The pain was so intense it was was difficult for Mr. Jackson to breath.
The Jackson’s vacation was ruined as well as his holidays. He was confined to a reclining chair for over a month as it was too uncomfortable to sleep in his bed.
If you are injured in an auto accident, Attorney Jim Brady and Associates recommends keeping a record of all of your medical visits, bills and out of pocket expenses. A successful claim was brought against the insurance company and was settled for the policy limits. We were also able to recover monies from the underinsurace company and were able to our client monies for the pain and suffering, out of pocket expenses and the loss of enjoyment of life.
