In this case, GJEL Accident Attorneys represented a woman who was driving with her two children on Pleasant Hill Road in Santa Rosa. The commercial truck driving in front of her missed its turn, stopped and reversed without looking–directly into the client’s car, resulting in an truck accident. GJEL’s client suffered neck and ankle injuries in the collision. The client also developed Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS).

The defendants in this case were both the driver of the truck and the company that employed the driver. They argued that our client’s injuries could not have been sustained by this impact because the collision was low-speed.

Despite the defendants’ arguments, GJEL Accident Attorneys was able to prove our client’s injuries were a result of this accident. GJEL Accident Attorneys worked with expert medical consultants familiar with this specialized diagnosis, as well as an eyewitness, GJEL Accident Attorneys obtained $100,000 for this client.
