CASES OF INTEREST: JUNE 2022
FATAL CRASH INVOLVING SIX VEHICLES
A Napoleon man faces criminal charges after causing a crash involving at least six vehicles and killing two people. Alcohol was believed to be a factor. The incident began when the Napoleon man was traveling southbound on I-75 and struck another vehicle from behind. That vehicle then crossed the center median and struck two vehicles in the northbound lane.
Two of the vehicles became fully engulfed in flames. We represent the estate of a young woman who died in the collision. Our office is pursuing a wrongful death matter on behalf of the estate, and seeking closure for her family.
FAILURE TO YIELD RIGHT OF WAY LEADS TO HEAD-ON COLLISION
Our client was traveling eastbound on CR 117 in Woodville Township, Ohio. At the same time another vehicle, which was coming from northbound CR 14, failed to yield and made a left turn into our client’s path of travel.
The at-fault driver crossed left of center and hit our client head-on. Our client was life-flighted to Toledo Hospital. There she was found to have a displaced left tibia fracture, a displaced pelvis, bleeding around her kidneys, and a concussion.
She is under the care of a rehab facility and has a long road to recovery.
Our client was taking a stroll in her neighborhood when several dogs ran out and charged at her. As she attempted to run, she fell on the sidewalk injuring her arm. She was taken to the ER and after undergoing imaging was found to have fractured her wrist and was placed in a splint. She eventually needed surgery and underwent several sessions of rehab. Our office is pursuing a claim against the dog owner.
