Our client was lawfully driving on Summerfield Road in Michigan when she was involved in a motor vehicle accident that resulted in serious and long-term injuries. While driving through the intersection of Erie Road, our client’s vehicle was struck by another driver who failed to yield the right of way.
This collision resulted in significant injuries to our client’s right arm, left knee, lower back and right leg. In addition to these injuries, our client’s pre-existing lower back issues were made worse by the impact and stress of the collision.
Due to the negligence of another driver, our client suffered permanent injuries that caused an incursion of substantial medical costs, as well as, great pain and suffering. Our client’s husband lost the companionship and affection of his spouse due to the injuries suffered in this accident.
The attorneys at Charles Boyk Law, tirelessly worked with our client to develop a just and effective course of action. We decided to pursue four claims as a result of this collision:
- Negligence claim against the other driver for failing to operate her vehicle in a safe manner.
- Negligent entrustment claim against the owner of the other driver’s vehicle for giving a vehicle to an incompetent and dangerous driver.
- Loss of consortium claim against the other driver as their negligent act deprived our client’s spouse of love and affection.
- Underinsured claim against our client’s insurance company, United Services Automobile Association, to help ensure she receives her underinsured coverage.
This compensation will not undo the damage caused by the accident, but it will help our client get her life back on track after this traumatic event.
