Lambert was struck by Weakley in the pelvis and then the car sat on top of her for nearly 20 minutes before rescue crews were able to lift the car off her. Athens-Clarke County rescue workers had to use a hydraulic pump to get the car off her. She suffered severe fractures in both hips, pelvic bones, a broken right upper arm, broken ribs, a closed head injury, and two facial lacerations.

Lambert was in the hospital for three weeks, running her bills over $220,000. The time she spent out of work cost her $27,000.

Her attorneys included medical illustrations to prove her case. One photo had lines pointing to each injury she sustained on her body, covering the page. Other photos were x-rays to show broken bones and hardware needed to repair injuries. She continues to experience pain and has trouble walking. She has not yet returned to work.
