Improper Lane Merging Causes Serious Injuries to Toledo Driver

In November of 2018, our client was traveling through Toledo, Ohio when another driver attempted to pass her. The other motorist had not fully passed our client before moving into her lane. As a result, the negligent driver struck the front right side of our client’s vehicle, causing her to lose control of her car, spin out, and crash head-on into the cement barrier to her left.

At the scene of the accident, the negligent driver received a citation for failing to abide by state traffic laws. Our client was transported by ambulance from the scene of the wreck to a nearby hospital where she began immediate treatment for serious injuries to her left arm, hand, and leg.

Pursuing Compensation for Our Client

The at-fault driver breached his duty of care by improperly passing our client, causing her to suffer severe injuries and property damage. As a direct result of the defendant’s negligence, our client suffered serious physical, mental, and emotional injuries. In addition to injuries on the left side of her body, our client has experienced debilitating migraines and disruptive mental symptoms such as anxiety and panic attacks.

Our client sustained financial losses as well, as her injuries required her to undergo extensive medical care, including surgery. Because our client has been unable to work during her recovery, she has also lost substantial wages. Her injuries are believed to be permanent and will likely require medical care in the future, placing a further financial burden on our client.

Not only has our client sustained economic losses, but she has also suffered pain, mental anguish, and emotional distress due to the accident caused by the other driver. Additionally, our client’s husband has suffered a loss of consortium, as he is being deprived of the love and affection of his wife because of her injuries. Therefore, we are pursuing compensation to cover all of our client’s damages.
