Settlement: $2.1 Million
(October 2015, Dekalb County) Our client was a pre-med student at Emory University. He was walking from class back to his dorm. He was standing at a cross walk along Clifton Road when a driver ran a red light, hit another car, and plowed into the side walk. Our client was hit and run over by the car and trapped under the car as it caught fire. Our client was left with serious injuries including fourth degree burns. Due to the carelessness of the other driver, our client was forced to leave school and undergo treatments for over six months. This accident completely changed our client’s life and caused serious physical and emotional trauma. Our client was left with tens of thousands of dollars in medical bills. The attorneys at Hinton & Powell fought hard for our client to achieve maximum results. After numerous negotiations and undergoing a mediation process the case was settled for 2.1 million dollars.
(June 2012, Walton County) Our client was driving down Alcovy Street in Walton County Georgia when her life changed. Shortly after pulling into a left turn lane the car behind her failed to keep proper distance and caused a rear end collision. This accident burdened our client’s life with personal injury, thousands of dollars in medical bills, a totaled vehicle, and lost wages. The initial settlement offer from the at fault party’s insurance company was $2,200. The attorneys at Hinton & Powell were prepared to fight until the end to win proper compensation for our client. After numerous negotiations a fair settlement was offered at $150,000.
(May 2012) Our client was involved in a multiple automobile collision. Due to this collision the client experienced back pain and amassed significant medical bills. The client also suffered from over two years of lost wages.

After a few months of due diligence and negotiations the attorneys at Hinton & Powell were prepared to argue our client’s case in court. Because of the hard work, perseverance, and vetted negotiation skills of the Hinton & Powell team, the insurance company gave an acceptable settlement offer. The final settlement was twenty-three times the original offer at $240,000. We are satisfied knowing that our client received the compensation that was deserved.
