In August 2018, our client was driving his motorcycle through Findlay, Ohio on a main road. That afternoon, while our client was lawfully stopped at a stop sign, a negligent motorist driving in the opposite direction failed to stop at a stop sign at that intersection.
The negligent driver then entered our client’s path, causing his motorcycle to collide with the front driver’s side of the car. After the crash, our client was taken to a nearby hospital to be treated for the injuries he sustained in the motorcycle accident. The negligent driver was given a citation for failing to stop at a stop sign.
The negligent driver had a duty of car to operate her vehicle in a safe and reasonable manner. She breached that duty when she did not adhere to traffic laws, ran a stop sign, and caused a collision between our client’s motorcycle and her car.
Our client incurred unexpected medical costs, as he underwent treatment for resulting injuries to his back, neck, leg, arm, and wrist. In addition to the medical costs, our client suffered lost wages as he waited for his injuries to heal.
Due to the negligence of the other driver, our client will also have a diminished quality of life. He has experienced great pain, suffering, and mental anguish from the accident that will impact his ability to engage in his normal life.
Our client’s injuries are likely permanent in nature and will require additional medical care and costs in the future. His life will be forever altered by this accident. On behalf of our client, we are pursuing compensation in excess of $25,000 to cover the current and future costs related to his accident.
