Injured Party Pursues Damages for Rear-End Collision Caused by Out-of-Town Driver
In January 2019, our client was traveling on Navarre Avenue in Oregon, Lucas County, OH. While stopped at an intersection, a reckless driver rear-ended her, causing her to suffer multiple injuries to both of her wrists and arms, as well as her neck, back, and head.
This accident could have been avoided if the negligent driver had paid attention to the road and kept a safe distance from our client. At the scene of the accident, Oregon Police cited the other motorist for failing to maintain an assured and clear distance ahead. Our legal team at Charles E. Boyk Law Offices is pursuing a legal claim against this negligent driver to obtain compensation for our client.
Establishing the Defendant’s Negligence
The defendant had a responsibility to follow Ohio traffic laws and drive safely, known as a duty of care. Instead of fulfilling her legal responsibility, the negligent driver endangered our client by rear-ending her. Because the defendant received a traffic citation, it is evident that she is solely responsible for our client’s injuries and damages.
This accident left our client with a concussion, recurring headaches, and expensive medical bills. Unfortunately, she believes her injures are permanent, meaning she will continue to endure physical, mental, and emotional pain and financial losses. To offset our client’s injures and damages, we are seeking compensation through trial by jury.
