This blog post will continue my discussion of a Motor Vehicle Accident case in Atlanta, Georgia that I began discussing in my blog post titled, “In Fulton County, Atlanta, Georgia a Jury awards $1.5 Million for Injuries sustained by a 7 Year Old Child from a Driver that was Texting and Driving ~ part one.” Ms. Anderson, Chasity’s mother who was driving at the time of the accident when she was reared ended by the driver that was texting and driving, was also injured in the accident but settled her injury claim, filed a lawsuit on behalf of her daughter in Fulton County State Court in the year of 2009. The case is Anderson v. Brenner, No. 2009EV007726.
In this case, there would be no dispute that the Defendants, Mr. Brenner and the lawn company who owned the vehicle he was driving at the time of the accident, were at fault in the accident as the driver, Mr. Brenner, would admit that he was texting a customer while driving and when he hit the vehicle carrying Ms. Anderson and her then seven (7) year old daughter, Miss Chasity. What would be at issue was whether or not Chasity, who was fifteen (15) years old at the time of trial, had, in fact, made a full recovery.
