Client Rear-Ended by Vehicle, Propelled into Ditch, Boyk Attorneys Pursue Additional Claims against Under-Insured Motorist Carrier to Recover Damages Beyond Motorist’s Policy LimitsCar Accident Injuries
In the Spring of 2018, our client was traveling on a county road in Sandusky County, Ohio when they were rear-ended by motorist. The force of the impact propelled our client’s vehicle into a nearby ditch. As can be imagined, our client suffered serious injury, including: a concussion, neck and rib pain, back pain, cervicalgia, hyperreflexia, post-concussion syndrome, and various others. Particularly troublesome, our client was the owner and operator of a successful small business. Because of these injuries, our client was unable to return to work in a normal capacity, and their business suffered from the absence.
Somewhat unique to our client’s position, their damages exceeded the policy amount of the at-fault party’s insurance. Because of this, our attorneys pursued a claim against the underinsured insurance carrier to recover an amount that would cover all of our client’s damages. Successful in doing so, our attorneys recovered an additional $175,000 that assists our client in bringing normalcy to their life.
