Motorcycle driver and passenger were thrown from bike after vehicle pulled out in front of them
Our client, a 40-year-old Toledo woman, was a passenger on her friend’s motorcycle when another vehicle pulled out in front of them. There was no time to stop and the motorcycle struck the side of the vehicle throwing both the driver and our client onto the pavement. Our client suffered numerous abrasions to the body including her legs, face, arm, and back. She also was knocked unconscious and is now suffering from a closed head brain injury. She was taken from the scene by ambulance and is now treating with a neurologist for her head injury.
Confused driver’s negligence causes man’s death
Our client, a 70-year-old Toledo resident, lost his life due to the negligence of his driver. He was a loving husband and father of two. Our client was a passenger in a one-vehicle accident. He was riding with one of his friends on a rural road. As it was foggy out that day, the police suspect that that driver became confused and overcorrected on a curve, throwing the pickup into a six-foot ditch along the road. The pickup ended up on its roof, severely injuring both our client and the driver. Our client died as a result of the accident a week later. The driver is now paralyzed and is still in critical condition.
Unlikely to return to work after rear-end accident
Our client, a wife, and mother of one were stopped at a stop light when a vehicle slammed into the rear of her vehicle. She was treated at the hospital for a concussion and pain to her knee and back. After receiving physical therapy for nearly three months, she has since had to undergo two knee surgeries and will likely need another surgery to repair the damage to her knee. She has been told that it is unlikely that she will be able to return to her former job which required lifting and bending.
