We work hard to obtain maximum compensation for our clients. Constant communication, tough negotiating and expert trial skills have resulted in us obtaining millions of dollars in settlements for the injured.
Here are just a small portion of the damages we were able to collect on behalf of our clients. Due to the confidentiality clauses in some settlement agreements, we cannot share detailed information about many of our biggest cases on our website.
Our client was riding his motorcycle in the curb lane southbound on Holland Road in Maumee, Ohio. At the same time, another driver was attempting to leave the Meijer parking lot and head northbound on Holland Road. This driver failed to yield the right of way to our client, pulling out in front of him, and colliding with his motorcycle. Our client was thrown onto the roadway, landing on his right shoulder. He was taken to a nearby emergency department for medical treatment and there it was revealed that he had sustained a fracture to his scapula, eye contusion, and pulmonary contusion. Following the accident our client was unable to work for approximately seven weeks due to his injuries. He required a significant amount of physical therapy and follow up care to ensure his injuries were healing properly.
Following the accident, our client reached out to us for help with his legal recovery. When negotiations pre-suit was unsuccessful, Andrea Young and her litigation team filed a lawsuit on behalf of our client. After undertaking discovery and depositions, Andrea was successful in obtaining the policy limits for our client.
Our client was traveling southbound on North Holland-Sylvania Road and was just a few blocks away from her home when she was involved in a serious car accident. As our client was approaching the intersection with Bancroft Street, traffic was heavy, and the light ahead had turned red. Our client properly slowed down, however, the driver behind her did not. The driver behind our client failed to notice traffic ahead of her coming to a stop and was traveling approximately 40-50 miles per hour, even though the speed limit was only 35 mph. This driver collided with the rear end of our client’s car with so much force that our client’s vehicle was propelled forward into the vehicle in front of her. Upon impact our client was flung forward into her steering wheel. As a result of the accident our client suffered a whiplash injury and a severely fractured nose. Due to the severity of the fracture, our client underwent surgery to repair her nose. Several months later as the injury healed, she began having difficulty breathing through her nose and was required to undergo surgery again. Following this second surgery she continued to experience obstructed breathing, ear pain, sinus pressure, and migraines. Additionally, the surgery had left her nose significantly deformed. Due to these continued problems, our client was forced to undergo a third surgery and she may require additional surgical intervention in the future.
We were contacted by our client to assist her in her legal recovery from the accident. When settlement negotiations were unsuccessful, Charles Boyk and his litigation team filed a lawsuit against the at-fault driver. After undertaking discovery and depositions, the case went to mediation where we were successful in recovering $300,000 for our client.
In July 2022 our client was outside of her home in Perrysburg, Ohio, when this incident occurred. Our client had been walking in the area between her home and her neighbor’s home. At the same time, her neighbor was attempting to put his dog out on a lead. The dog noticed our client walking and managed to slip free from his owner’s control. The dog ran after our client and latched onto her ankle and calf. Eventually the dog’s owner was able to regain control of the dog and stop it from further attacking our client. As a result of this attack, our client sustained several serve lacerations, tears, and puncture wounds to her calf and ankle. Additionally, the dog severed part of our client’s Achille’s tendon and the wound in that area was so deep that her Achille’s tendon was visible. One of the wounds then became infected and required our client to need a wound vac. Our client also was required to have multiple surgeries to repair the injury to her ankle. Following the attack our client required counseling as she began to have significant anxiety regarding dogs.
When our client contacted us, we knew it was our job to assist our client, who had suffered a great deal, the compensation she deserved for this awful incident. Charles Boyk and his pre-litigation team immediately got to work on the case. Once our client was done treating, we presented a demand for settlement to the dog owner’s insurance company and through negotiations were successful in obtaining a $235,000 settlement for our client.
This accident occurred in 2021 when our client was traveling northbound in the right lane of Interstate 280 in Oregon, Ohio. Another driver attempted to pass our client in the left lane, but a plow truck prevented him from doing so. To avoid colliding with the plow truck in front of him, the other driver slowed down too fast, causing him to lose control of his vehicle. As a result, he collided with the driver’s side of our client’s vehicle. The Oregon Police Department responded to the scene of the accident and cited the other driver for failure to control his vehicle. Our client was transported via ambulance to a nearby hospital for treatment of his injuries where he was diagnosed with a concussion, chest wall pain, and injury to his left arm.
When our client contacted our office, Attorney Andrea Young went to work, communicating with the at-fault party’s insurance carrier. Through negotiations, she was successful in obtaining a satisfactory settlement for our client.
This accident occurred in 2023 when our client was traveling eastbound along State Route 15 on his motorcycle at approximately 55 miles per hour. As he was doing so, another driver was attempting to merge onto the highway and failed yield the right of way to our client. This other driver, who was traveling approximately 40 miles per hour, sideswiped our client, causing him to be thrown off of his motorcycle and onto the highway. The Ohio State Highway Patrol responded to the scene and cited the other driver for the accident. Our client was then transported to the hospital with serious injuries. At the hospital our client was diagnosed with a closed head injury, an open fracture of his ulna, a severe heel laceration, a degloving injury to his lower right leg, and an orbital contusion. Due to the severity of his injuries, our client was transferred to another hospital more equipped to deal with his injuries. He was admitted the hospital for several days and required surgical intervention for his injuries.
Knowing he needed assistance with his legal recovery, our client reached out to us for help. Attorney Mike Bruno and his pre-litigation paralegal immediately began communicating with the insurance company of the at-fault driver to get our client the compensation he deserved. They were quickly successful in obtaining a policy limits offer of $100,000, which the client accepted.
Our client was traveling eastbound on his motorcycle along US 223 in Monroe County, Michigan when this accident occurred. Our client had slowed down to turn when the vehicle behind him failed to notice him slowing down, causing the vehicle to rear-end our client. The force of the collision caused our client to be ejected off his motorcycle and onto the roadway. The driver of the at-fault vehicle fled the scene, but the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office soon made contact with him and observed that he was under the influence of alcohol.
Following the accident, our client promptly sought medical attention for his injuries. X-rays, and a CT scan revealed that he had sustained two fractures to his thoracic vertebrae. In the days following the accident our client also began developing hearing loss and ringing in his left ear. Our client required numerous follow up appointments, physical therapy, and had to undergo multiple rounds of steroid injections to help manage his pain.
When our client needed assistance with his legal recovery, he contacted our office. Attorney Andrea Young and her pre-litigation team worked with and for our client to ensure that he obtained the result he deserved. Andrea and her team were successful in receiving a policy limits offer of $100,000 for our client without the need for the lengthy litigation.
In February 2021, our client was parked along North Michigan Street in Wayne County, Ohio, when a truck with a plow attached to the front, collided with the driver’s side of her vehicle. The at-fault driver stated to police that the accelerator had gotten stuck under the floor mat of the vehicle and despite pressing the brake, he was unable to stop. Due to the accident our client sustained injury to her back and she was required to undergo an invasive surgery where our client had to receive two artificial discs in her back. Following the surgery our client required numerous follow up appointments and physical therapy to rehabilitate her injuries. She experienced great pain in trying to perform her duties as a nurse and was unable to take part in the activities she once enjoyed following the accident to the same extent.
Shortly after the accident, our client reached out to our office. Our team went to work in assisting her with getting the compensation she deserved. When settling the case pre-suit was unsuccessful due to a low offer by the at-fault driver’s insurance company, we filed a lawsuit on behalf of our client. Following discovery, depositions, and a medical examination conducted by a physician hired by defense counsel, the insurance company rendered our client the policy limits of $100,000.
In April 2023, our client was a passenger in a vehicle where the driver lost control and struck a utility pole. The collision caused the vehicle to catch fire. Our client was transported via ambulance to a nearby hospital where it was discovered that she had sustained a right femur fracture. Initially upon arrival at the hospital our client required intubation for pain management. She was then urgently taken into surgery where underwent surgical repair of her femur fracture that included the placement of five screws and a plate to stabilize the injury. She then remained in the hospital for six days prior to being discharged to a rehabilitation facility.
Immediately after she contacted us, our team went to work contacting the driver’s insurance company, ordering medical bills and records, and ensuring that our client got the result she deserved. After collecting the essential information, Mr. Boyk and his pre-litigation team sent a demand for the policy limits to the insurance company and was successful in securing the policy limits of $100,000 for our client.
Our client, who is an industrial real estate sales and leasing agent, had been hired in January 2021 to assist with the leasing of an industrial building in Toledo, Ohio. As part of his agreement with this client, our client would meet a utility worker at the property and let him inside so that he could read the electric meter. On the day of the incident, our client met the utility worker at the location. The utility worker was let in and went to go read the meter. As he was waiting for him to be done, our client was walking back towards his vehicle by way of sidewalk that had become completely overgrown with tall weeds. Unbeknownst to our client, vines across the sidewalk were present but were concealed by the overgrowth. As our client was walking he tripped on the vines causing him to fall face forward. His face hit the sharp edges of the cooling fins on the nearby transformer causing him a blunt and penetrating trauma. The metal fins ripped their way through and ruptured our client’s right eye.
Our client was initially taken to Toledo Hospital for treatment but was quickly air lifted to The University of Michigan due to the severity of the injury. It was determined that our client had sustained a ruptured and collapsed right globe and he was immediately taken into surgery for a cornea transplant. Unfortunately, the injury to our client’s eye was permanent as he is still unable to see out of his right eye and he continues to experience severe discomfort and pain. He has been told by his doctor’s that he will eventually need to undergo surgery to completely remove his right eye and be fitted for a prosthetic eye.
This case was referred to us by another attorney. Prior to litigation, all the parties agreed to mediate the case. In preparation for the mediation, our office’s Marketing Content Producer went to our client’s house and filmed a client impact video to illustrate just how deeply our client’s life was impacted by this incident. At a pre-suit mediation, we were able to secure a satisfactory settlement on behalf of our client.
In August 2019, our client sustained serious injuries when she was involved in a motor vehicle collision in Hancock County, Ohio. Our client was traveling in the northwest direction on Blanchard Avenue near its intersection with Strong Avenue. At the same time another driver was traveling in the southeast direction on Blanchard Avenue near the intersection with Strong Avenue. The other driver attempted to make a left turn in front of our client, failing to yield the right of way to our client, and causing him to collide with the driver’s side of our client’s vehicle. The force of the collision was so strong that our client’s vehicle traveled off the roadway and into a street sign. Due to the severity of her injuries, our client was transported via ambulance to a nearby hospital. For nearly two years following the accident our client dealt with continuing left elbow pain in which she attempted to alleviate with rehabilitation and steroid injections. Unfortunately, those treatments did not prove successful which lead to her doctor recommending that she undergo surgical intervention to repair the injury. When reaching a settlement with the at-fault driver’s insurance company did not prove successful, our office filed a lawsuit on our client’s behalf. After conducting discovery and depositions we were able to secure a policy limits settlement in the amount of $100,000 for our client.
