On January 22, 2020, our client and his young daughter were traveling on Douglas Road in Toledo, Ohio, when they approached an intersection and attempted to make a right turn. As our client was turning, a negligent motorist struck the rear-end of his vehicle.
After the accident, our client and his daughter were transported to the emergency department at St. Anne’s Hospital for treatment. The defendant was later cited for failing to maintain an assured clear distance ahead.
Evaluating Our Client’s Damages
The defendant owed a duty of care to our client and his daughter to safely operate his vehicle. Unfortunately, he breached this duty when he failed to maintain an assured clear distance ahead, directly causing a rear-end collision.
As a result of this accident, our client sustained severe injuries to his back. His daughter suffered injuries to her neck, stomach, back, and head. Additionally, our client and his daughter have experienced pain, suffering, emotional distress, and mental anguish because of the incident.
These injuries are believed to be permanent. Our client expects to incur significant economic losses due to the long-term medical treatment he and his daughter will likely need. On behalf of our client and his daughter, we are seeking compensation to cover all their current and future losses.
