On July 28, 2021, our client, who is wheelchair-bound, was riding in the back of a Careology, LLC medical transport vehicle in Lucas County, Ohio. However, the Careology employee who assisted our client into the vehicle failed to secure his wheelchair properly.
When the driver took a right turn, our client was thrown from his wheelchair into a sharp metal object inside the vehicle. Our client was immediately admitted to the nearest hospital and treated by the trauma team.
Due to the negligence of the Careology and its employee, our client suffered preventable injuries. Therefore, on behalf of our client, the lawyers at Charles E. Boyk Law Offices are pursuing just compensation.
Determining Negligence and Damages
The negligent employee had a duty to secure our client inside the vehicle but failed to do so. Additionally, Careology had a responsibility to ensure its employees were trained on how to safely secure wheelchair-bound passengers into the company’s transport vehicles.
As a result of the defendants’ negligence, our client suffered a severe leg injury that required surgery and an extended recovery process. Furthermore, our client incurred great pain and suffering, mental anguish, emotional distress, and loss of enjoyment in life.
Our client has also endured significant financial losses due to the hospital and medical care costs associated with his injury. Additionally, he believes that his injury is permanent, meaning it will require future medical care and cause further physical and emotional harm.
If Careology, LLC had taken the appropriate measures to ensure its employees were adequately trained, our client’s injuries and damages could have been prevented. Our legal team hopes to obtain financial compensation for our client’s present damages, future damages, and legal fees.
