Our client, who was a pedestrian, was struck on Roswell Road in Atlanta after grocery shopping.  Our client was not in the crosswalk but we were able to show the insurance company that the risk of an extremely large adverse verdict against their insured driver, who admitted to having 2 glasses of wine with dinner, was high enough to pay their limits even though eye-witnesses were not very favorable.  Our client suffered head injuries and brain trauma, a fractured leg, and internal injuries to her bladder and liver requiring open abdominal surgery.  She remained hospitalized at a local hospital for several weeks in a coma.
