In 2015, our client was traveling eastbound on U.S. 20 in Sylvania, Ohio, when he was involved in an automobile accident. As our client approached the intersection of U.S. 20 and the Interstate 475 entrance ramp, the defendant driver failed to yield the right of way to oncoming traffic while attempting to make a left turn onto the ramp, colliding with our client. Our client was transported from the scene of the accident by ambulance to a nearby hospital to treat his injuries. The defendant was found to be at-fault and was issued a citation by the Sylvania Police Department.
At the hospital, our client was found to have sustained a compression fracture to his spinal cord as well as a fractured sternum. These injuries not only caused our client a great amount of pain, but also created complications for the ongoing health conditions our client already suffered from. Prior to the accident, he was able to manage these medical issues and live independently without assistance. However, after the accident, living alone proved quite challenging for our client as he was bound to a wheelchair and unable to get around. With no family living in Ohio, our client relied heavily on his neighbors, who were kind enough to assist him after the accident.
We were contacted shortly after the accident to assist our client in navigating his recovery. Due to our team’s hard work, we successfully avoided the need for litigation and obtained a satisfactory settlement for our client.
