Erie County Passenger Sues For Injuries Sustained in an Automobile Collision
On February 21, 2020, our client was riding as a passenger in a vehicle traveling north on U.S. Route 250 in Perkins Township, Ohio. As the driver entered the intersection of US 250 and E Bogart Road, a negligent motorist traveling south attempted to make a left turn. This careless driver failed to yield to oncoming traffic, striking the car our client was in.
Our client suffered a traumatic brain injury in the accident. Consequently, our attorneys at Charles E. Boyk Law Offices are seeking compensation on her behalf.
Determining the Defendants’ Negligence
The negligent motorist failed to yield to oncoming traffic, which violated her duty of care to drive safely. This careless act directly caused the accident and our client’s injuries. The owner of the car is the second negligent party in this case, as he lent his vehicle to a reckless driver. Vehicle owners must ensure a driver is competent before allowing them to use their vehicle.
Evaluating Our Client’s Damages
Although our client wore her seatbelt at all times, she suffered from a traumatic brain injury in the accident and incurred significant medical costs due to the defendants’ negligence. She suffers from headaches, dizziness, painful ringing of her ears, and emotional distress.
Additionally, our client’s husband has suffered from a loss of consortium. Our team is fighting for fair compensation to help our clients recover from their injuries and damages.
