Zagoria Law Settles Case against Grimes Trucking for $650,000
ATLANTA, GA – September 26, 2016 – Zagoria Law, an Atlanta-based law firm specializing in personal injury cases, today announced that it has settled the negligence suit of Dorcas Milton vs. Grimes Trucking (Defendant) in favor of the plaintiff, securing a $650,000 award for its client, Milton.
According to court filings, the Grimes Trucking dump truck was moving westbound on Mercer University Drive on November 1, 2015, when the driver turned left in front of Milton. Milton was traveling eastbound on Mercer Drive in a 2013 Kia Optima. The dump truck’s sudden left-hand turn in front of Milton’s vehicle caused a catastrophic collision. Milton was admitted to Grady Hospital’s trauma unit with a left femoral hip dislocation and a posterior dislocation of the femoral head, along with a multi-segmented fracture of the posterior hip wall.
“A massive dump truck like the one involved in this case can cause significant physical damage to drivers and passengers in smaller cars,” said Zagoria Law Founder and Principal David Zagoria. “Catastrophic injuries such as Milton’s are likely to affect her for the rest of her life, as evidenced by this sizeable award.”
