On August 4th, 2020, our client was driving eastbound on Tiffin Avenue in Findlay, Hancock County, Ohio, when she stopped at a red light. At the same time, another driver operating a semi-truck came to a strop behind her.
When the light turned green, our client began to move forward, and the negligent truck driver struck the rear bumper of her car. Following the accident, our client was taken to the emergency room for treatment. Our client suffered serious injuries and unnecessary harm due to the truck driver’s negligence. Consequently, the attorneys at Charles E. Boyk Law Offices are seeking compensation for all her injuries and losses.
Assessing Our Client’s Damages
The defendant was acting within the course and scope of their employment with Southern Pines Trucking, Inc. at the time of the accident. The employee had a duty to exercise ordinary care and caution for the safety and welfare of others while operating the commercial vehicle.
Additionally, the company itself is responsible for the actions of its employees. Due to the negligence of Southern Pines Trucking, Inc. and its employee, our client suffered severe injuries, including injuries to her legs, back, neck, and head. She also incurred great pain, suffering, mental anguish, and emotional distress.
Our client suffered significant financial losses due to lost wages and medical bills stemming from her treatment. She believes that these injuries are permanent and expects these economic losses to persist.
If the Southern Pines Trucking, Inc. employee had shown an appropriate level of care, our client’s injuries and damages could have been avoided. In this case, we hope to secure compensation to cover all our client’s current and future damages.
