Our Personal Connection To Wrong-Way Accidents
The Charles E. Boyk Law Offices have personal experience dealing with wrong-way accidents. Throughout the last few years, our attorneys have represented those injured in accidents of this nature and successfully helped our clients to receive compensation.
This type of accident is both confusing and overwhelming. Our attorneys know the correct steps to take with all parties involved, ending in a favorable resolution.
In 2011, The Charles E. Boyk Law Offices, LLC closed a case in which a man was injured in a wrong-way accident two years prior. The client suffered serious back, ankle, knee, and wrist complications resulting in an inability to continue working. After numerous doctor visits, tests, and several procedures, our client found himself with a massive amount of medical bills.
Since this particular wrong-way accident occurred in Michigan, our Ohio attorneys, with Michigan co-counsel, were forced to file suit out-of-state. But, by working through the proper channels, we were able to settle with the insurance company, and our client received compensation amounting to $550,000.
A pending case that The Charles E. Boyk Law Offices are dealing with is a drunk driver on the US 23, Monroe Street exit ramp in Sylvania, Ohio. While exiting the ramp, our client was struck by a driver traveling the opposite way of traffic. Blood alcohol tests confirmed the wrong-way driver was under the influence of drugs and alcohol at the time of the accident. This man’s decision to drive under the influence put others on the roadway in danger, ultimately resulting in our client’s daily neck, back, shoulder, and knee pain. The attorneys at our office are working with the client, ensuring the appropriate compensation is given for the numerous medical expenses accrued.
The Charles E. Boyk Law Offices, LLC can only wish that the number of Ohio wrong-way accidents decreases this year. No other drivers should have to suffer the life-changing injuries that our clients have faced.
