Injured Driver Seeks Damages for Rear-End Car Accident
On May 16, 2018, our client was injured in a car accident that was caused by the negligence and a breach of care by another motorist. Our client was driving in Lucas County, Ohio and stopped at a red light, with a third-party vehicle stopped directly behind her.
The defendant failed to maintain a clear distance ahead, and thus failed to stop for the same traffic light. As a result, the defendant driver rear-ended the third-party vehicle, which then struck our client’s vehicle. Our client suffered injuries to her neck, left shoulder, and back as a result of the accident.
Additionally, at the time of the accident, the defendant did not have sufficient insurance coverage to compensate for the damages our client sustained.
Reviewing Damages from the Incident
On behalf of our client, we have filed a negligence claim seeking compensation for her injuries, the resulting medical bills, economic loss, pain and suffering, severe mental anguish, and emotional distress.
Furthermore, we are pursuing a claim for loss of consortium for our client’s husband as the accident has impaired his ability to resume normal activities with his spouse and has negatively impacted his quality of life.
Lastly, we are pursuing a claim against our client’s insurance company using the uninsured and underinsured motorist policy, as such coverage was included in her insurance at the time of the accident.
On behalf of our client we are seeking more than $25,000 in damages, plus interest, costs, and fees associated with this claim, in addition to any other relief that the court may deem just.
