Inattentive driver causes car accident in merging traffic
Several exhibitionists from Minnesota had traveled to Texas to show their rabbits. They were traveling home together when the accident occurred. They had entered a construction zone near Hewitt, Texas and traffic began merging from two lanes into one. A large truck merging caused all the traffic behind it to come to a stop. Our client stopped her vehicle, as did the car behind her but they were rear ended by a third driver who was following too closely. As a result of the collision, our client sustained permanent neck and shoulder injuries.
Art Kosieradzki, working with a Texas attorney, obtained a settlement for our client from the defendant's insurer of $485,688. He also obtained additional money from our client's underinsured motorist policy in the amount of $5,000.
