$100,000 Settlement – Man Suffers Severe Injury to His Hand in Auto Accident

In 2014, while on his way to work, our client sustained severe injuries in a motor vehicle accident. As our client was traveling northbound on Douglas Road in Toledo, Ohio, the defendant driver failed stop at a red light coming off Interstate 475 and struck our client’s car at 60 miles per hour. The impact from the collision caused our client’s vehicle to roll over and strike another car. After an investigation, the defendant was found to be at fault for the accident and was cited for failing to stop at the red light.

After the accident, our client remained in the hospital for the next four days to treat his injuries as he was found to have sustained injury to his neck and back, along with a complex hand laceration that required numerous stitches. Upon his release from the hospital, our client required extensive therapy to regain mobility and strength and was also required to attend many follow up medical appointments. The injury to our client’s hand was so severe that it resulted in extensive scarring and lack of mobility. As a result, it was expected that he would have to undergo scar revisions and a skin grafting procedure to attempt to increase his range of motion.

Not only did our client face serious injuries, but he also incurred substantial medical bills and expected to incur more medical expenses in the future due to the likelihood of additional medical procedures. Our client was also the main provider for his family. After the accident, he was unable to work for six months, which put a significant financial strain on him and his family.

We were contacted to assist our client shortly after the accident. Luckily, due to a successful negotiation we obtained a satisfactory policy limits settlement for our client without the need for a lengthy and complicated trial.
