On September 25, 2018, our client was driving in Ottawa County, Ohio when she was struck from behind by a negligent driver while trying to make a left turn at an intersection. The at-fault driver failed to pay attention to the flow of traffic and did not stop her vehicle in time, resulting in a rear-end accident. The careless motorist was issued a citation from the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office for failing to keep an assured distance ahead.
Following the accident, our client was taken by emergency medical services to the ER at Bay Park Hospital. Our client received treatment and sustained injuries to her back, neck, chest, and pelvis.
Damages Sought for Injuries
The negligent motorist owed a duty of care to follow Ohio traffic laws just as all other drivers owe. The resulting accident shows a breach in that duty, which directly caused our client’s injuries. The at-fault driver’s violation of the assured clear distance ahead statute demonstrated negligence per se. Thus, our client sustained serious injuries which she believes are permanent in nature and will require future medical treatment.
Damages our client has incurred as a result of the crash include medical bills, lost wages, and mental anguish. Our client’s spouse has also experienced a loss of consortium as well.
Our client and the lawyers at Charles E. Boyk Law Offices have asked for a judgment in excess of $25,000, including reasonable attorney fees, interest, economic and noneconomic damages, and any other recovery deemed necessary by the court.
