Prince, Glover & Hayes Matt Glover Settles Accident Case

Prince, Glover &
Hayes attorney Matt Glover has settled a case involving a rear-end collision. Our client was hit from behind by an employee of an Alabama city while on duty. The client suffered from debilitating back and right leg pain and had to undergo back surgery. The accident occurred over two years ago but our client unfortunately still suffers pain as a result of the collision. His medical expenses totaled over $160,000. Mr. Glover was able to settle the case and get all our client’s medical bills paid, in addition to recovering extra money for pain and suffering incurred due to the accident.

Cases involving city and municipality employees on duty can be difficult because the city often has a cap on how much money they can be sued for. However, the cap only applies to the “degree to which the action involves a state interest,” meaning that it is possible to exceed the cap if the employee was behaving in a way that was inconsistent with their duties. If you have been injured by someone while they were working for a city, do not give up if you are told you cannot recover more than the cap if your expenses exceed that amount. Call an attorney and let him or her see if there is anything that can be done to recover the full amount you deserve.
