A Georgia man, whose horse-drawn carriage was rearended in Atlanta, is filing a car accident lawsuit against the driver at fault, reports the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Victims of motor vehicle accidents often seek out a provider of lawsuit loans to help finance their litigation.
Donald Borchardt was seriously injured while taking tourists around the capital city last April. According to the news source, witnesses reported seeing no more than three cars racing along Peachtree Street moments before a Lexus struck the carriage.
The news provider reports that Borchardt was ejected from the carriage, hitting the hood of a car after flying 30 feet in the air. The accident resulted in a broken clavicle, fractured neck, six broken ribs and more.
The driver of the Lexus, identified as Gerald Odom, 28, was reportedly driving with a suspended license and was subsequently arrested on charges of following too closely, speeding and driving with open containers of alcohol.
The victim is seeking compensation for medical expenses and noneconomic damages, according to the Journal-Constitution.
Borchardt had three passengers in his carriage at the time of the accident, all of whom were injured and are also reportedly planning to file car accident lawsuits against Odom.
