Defiance Resident Sues for Injuries Sustained During Rear-End Collision on Highway
On November 5, 2019, our client, a resident of Defiance, Ohio, was traveling southbound on I-75 in Toledo. The motorist behind her was driving too closely and struck the back of her vehicle. The Toledo Police Division responded to the scene and cited the defendant for failing to maintain an assured clear distance ahead.
As a result of the collision, our client sustained injuries to her neck, back, head, and hands. She was taken to the emergency room for treatment soon after the accident. Given our client’s severe injuries, Charles E. Boyk Law Offices is pursuing compensation from the defendant for all her economic and non-economic losses. Additionally, we are seeking compensation on behalf of our client’s husband, as he has also been negatively affected by the accident.
Evaluating Our Client’s Injuries and Damages
All motorists should keep a reasonable distance from the car in front of them while driving. However, the defendant in this case failed to maintain an assured clear distance ahead. His negligence is further proven by the traffic citation he received at the scene of the crash.
Due to the negligence of the other driver, our client suffered catastrophic injuries. In addition to her physical harm, she has suffered non-economic losses such as mental anguish, pain and suffering, and emotional distress. Our client also suffered significant financial losses due to lost wages and medical bills stemming from her treatment.
Our client’s husband, the second plaintiff in this case, has also experienced a decreased quality of life since the accident. Due to the defendant’s actions, he can no longer enjoy daily activities with his wife.
Our clients believe that these injuries are permanent and expect their economic and non-economic losses to persist. In this case, we are striving to recover adequate compensation for all their current and future damages.
