On October 19, 2020, our client was traveling eastbound on State Route 2 in Lucas County, Ohio. While lawfully operating her vehicle, a negligent motorist approached our client and failed to keep an assured clear distance ahead. As a result, the negligent driver struck our client in a rear-end collision. Following the accident, the City of Oregon Police Department cited the negligent motorist for violating speed limits. Additionally, our client was treated by Oregon emergency medical services (EMS) for injuries sustained at the scene of the accident.
Damages Sought and Determining Negligence
The negligent motorist had a duty to safely operate her vehicle in accordance with Ohio law and the City of Oregon traffic laws. However, she breached that duty when she failed to maintain an assured clear distance ahead of her vehicle. As a result of this breach of duty, our client was injured.
The rear-end collision caused our client to suffer serious personal injuries to her neck and back that required medical attention. Because of this, our client incurred medical bills, lost wages, and other economic losses. Our client also believes her injuries are permanent and will require future medical treatment. In addition to economic damages, our client suffered severe mental anguish, emotional distress, and pain and suffering.
Due to the extent of the injuries and damages our client incurred, the skilled lawyers at Charles E. Boyk Law Offices are demanding money damages for our client’s bills and pain and suffering, interest, reasonable attorney fees, and other awards that the court may deem just.
