Employee of Car Dealership Crosses Center Line, Collides Head On With Client, Injuries Include Whiplash, Sprains, Lacerations, and Wrist Damage, Resulting in Several SurgeriesCar Accident Injuries
In the Fall of October, 2018 our client was traveling in Fulton County, Ohio. Unbeknownst to him, an employee of a car dealership was about to pull out of the lot. As the employee did so, they crossed the center line, traveled in the wrong direction, and hit out client head-on.
As a result of the head-on collision, our client suffered several injuries, including multiple muscle strains, whiplash, lacerations, and a prolonged injury to their right wrist. Our client has a family, and worked full-time to support their partner and several children. Because of this injury, our client struggled to make ends meet financially, do basic household chores, and be there for their children.
In conducting discovery and investigation into the employee of the car dealership, our attorneys and staff discovered that the employee of the car dealership has had several convictions for drug crimes and a history of license suspensions. Because of this, our attorneys not only pursued a negligence claim for failure to drive safely, but also a claim against the car dealership for negligently entrusting the task of driving to the employee.
We were able to reach a $100,000 settlement for our client after filing a lawsuit and conducting extensive depositions.
