$175,000 Settlement – Woman Injured When Distracted Driver Causes Auto Accident

In 2015, our client was driving along Reynolds Road in Toledo, Ohio when she was involved in a multi-vehicle car accident. As our client was approaching an intersection, she properly slowed with the flow of traffic. The defendant driver, however, had dropped a water bottle and had bent down to retrieve it from the floorboard of his car. Failing to see our client stop, the defendant rear-ended our client’s car. The impact of this collision sent our client’s car forward, into the car in front of her. The defendant was found to be at-fault for causing the accident and was issued a citation for failure to control and inattention.

Our client did not seek treatment immediately following the accident. However, as time went on and she continued to experience arm and neck pain, she sought medical treatment. Upon assessment, doctors discovered that our client had sustained a concussion and was suffering from whiplash as a direct result of the accident. In order to treat these injuries, our client began physical therapy and was referred to a pain management clinic. Unfortunately, these non-invasive medical treatments failed to reduce her pain and she was therefore required to undergo an invasive and painful surgical procedure. After the surgery, our client began physical therapy to rehabilitate the injury. Despite the surgical intervention and many treatment options our client pursued, she still suffered from severe continued pain.

We were retained to assist our client in her recovery from this horrible accident. We filed suit, but through successful negotiations we avoided trial and obtained a large settlement for our client. The substantial settlement we were able to secure for her will go a long way to account for the pain and suffering she has had to endure.
