Injured Driver Files Claim Against Drunk Driver After Head-On Collision

In May of 2019, our clients were driving on Bennett Road in Toledo when they were struck by another driver. The at-fault driver failed to follow traffic laws and drove across the center line in the road, resulting in a head-on collision. Before the accident, the at-fault driver drank enough to put him over the legal blood alcohol limit.

At the scene of the accident, the defendant driver was given a breath test that revealed a .169 BAC – more than twice the legal limit. He was charged with a DUI and failing to stay in marked lanes, and was found guilty of both charges in court.

Examining Damages

As a result of the crash, our clients were taken to the St. Vincent emergency room and treated for serious injuries, including a concussion, other head injuries, and whiplash. They believe their injuries are permanent in nature and will require further medical attention. Additionally, they endured pain and suffering, mental anguish, and lost wages as a result of the accident.

Our clients seek claims for these damages against the at-fault driver in an amount greater than $25,000 in addition to interest costs, reasonable attorney fees, punitive damages, and other relief that the Court deems just.
