Injured Motorcyclist Seeks Compensation After Negligent Driver Runs Red Light
On May 3, 2020, our client was driving his motorcycle westbound on Main Street in Tiffin, Ohio, approaching the intersection with Circular Street. At the same time, another driver was traveling southbound on Circular Street, approaching the intersection with Main Street.
The other driver’s traffic light turned red, but she continued into the intersection, causing our client to hit the front left side of her vehicle. Our client was thrown from his motorcycle onto the hood of the defendant’s car.
The Tiffin Police Department responded to the scene and cited the negligent motorist for failing to obey a traffic control device. Our client was transported by ambulance to the hospital, where he was treated for multiple rib fractures, a knee injury, and sprains to the neck and back. The legal team at Charles E. Boyk Law Offices is pursuing a case against the at-fault driver to recover compensation for his severe injuries.
Pursuing a Negligence Claim
All motorists owe a duty of care to others on the road, but the defendant breached that duty when she ran a red light. Because of the defendant’s negligence, our client was left with serious injuries that are believed to be permanent.
In addition to the physical and emotional distress brought on by the accident, our client has suffered significant financial losses due to his medical treatment. To account for these injuries and damages, we are seeking comprehensive compensation from the at-fault driver.
