On December 24, 2020, our client was driving westbound on State Route 2 in Lucas County, Ohio, in the right curb lane. At the same time, another motorist was traveling eastbound on State Route 2 in the left turn lane. The negligent driver failed to yield to the right of way while attempting to make a left turn and struck our client’s vehicle.
On January 6, 2021, our client was traveling southbound on Danberry Street approaching Airport Highway in Lucas County, Ohio. At the same time, the defendant was traveling eastbound on Airport Highway when they attempted a left turn onto north Danberry Street. The defendant cut the turn short and turned into the right side of the roadway, colliding with our client’s vehicle.
Our client suffered serious injuries and due to both defendants’ negligence. The legal team at Charles E. Boyk Law Offices is pursuing a claim against the reckless drivers to recover compensation for our client.
Assessing the Defendants’ Negligence
In both collisions, the negligent drivers had a responsibility to follow local traffic laws and take caution for other drivers. The first defendant breached this duty by failing to yield the right of way when turning left. The second defendant breached this duty by failing to make the appropriate turn. The defendants’ actions directly caused our client to suffer harm in vehicle collisions.
Damages As A Result of Both Defendant’s Negligence
As a direct and proximate result of both defendants’ negligence, our client sustained serious personal injuries, including injuries to her head, neck, back, wrist, knees, and right ankle. These injuries led to many economic and non-economic losses such as medical bills, pain and suffering, mental anguish, and emotional distress.
Our client believes that these injuries are permanent and will result in long-term economic and non-economic losses. The skilled lawyers at our firm believe reckless drivers should be held accountable for the consequences of their actions. We strive to recover comprehensive compensation for our client.
