Settlement – Woman Sustains Severe Ankle Fracture in Auto Accident

In June 2020, our client was traveling in Blanchard Township, Ohio when she sustained serious injuries in a motor vehicle accident. As our client was heading northbound on U.S. 68 approaching the intersection with State Route 60, the defendant driver, who was traveling eastbound on State Route 60 failed to yield the right of way to our client, causing a collision. The impact of the accident caused our client’s vehicle to travel off the road, flip, and land on its side.

The Hardin County Sheriff’s Office responded to the scene and after an investigation cited the defendant driver for failure to yield. Due to the severity of her injuries, our client was taken from the scene of the accident to a nearby hospital via Life Flight. At the hospital, she was diagnosed with a severe open right ankle fracture. She then remained in the hospital for the next six days and was required to undergo surgery to repair the injury to her ankle.

We were contacted shortly after this horrible accident to assist our client in her recovery. Through successful negotiations, we avoided the need for lengthy litigation and obtained a satisfactory 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.
