On January 11, 2020 our client was driving in Lucas County, Ohio when he was struck from behind by a negligent motorist who failed to stop at a traffic light. After striking our client’s vehicle, the motorist fled the scene of the accident. The Washington Township Police Department were in the area and recorded the plate number for the vehicle that fled the scene.
Following the crash, our client was taken to the hospital and treated for serious injuries to both his neck and back. Our client fears that his injuries are permanent and will require future medical attention.
Seeking Damages for the Client’s Injuries
The motorist responsible for the accident owed a duty of care to follow the traffic laws of the State of Ohio. The at-fault driver breached that duty by failing to stop at a traffic light and striking the rear end of our client’s vehicle. Further, the at-fault driver fled the scene of the accident, demonstrating a conscious disregard for the rights and safety our client.
As a direct result of the at-fault driver breaching her duty of care, our client sustained personal injuries, which resulted in medical costs and lost wages. He also experienced emotional distress, pain and suffering, and mental anguish.
On behalf of our client, the lawyers at Charles E. Boyk are seeking an amount greater than $25,000 in addition to punitive damages and reasonable attorney fees.
