On February 19, 2019, our client was a front-seat passenger in the defendant’s vehicle as they drove on Township Highway 44 in Salem Township, Wyandot County, Ohio. The defendant was speeding on the icy road and lost control of her car. This caused the vehicle to veer off the road and strike a utility pole before finally stopping in a field.
After the collision, our client was taken to Wyandot Memorial Hospital, where he was treated for serious personal injuries to multiple parts of his body, including his head. The Wyandot County Sheriff’s office cited the defendant for failing to control her vehicle.
At the time of the accident, the defendant did not have sufficient automobile insurance. Fortunately, our client was covered through his uninsured and underinsured motorist policy with Allstate Insurance Company. We are aiding our client in his pursuit of comprehensive compensation from the defendant and his insurer.
Seeking Compensation from the Negligent Driver and Allstate
The defendant had a duty to operate her vehicle safely, but she breached that duty by driving too fast for the icy road conditions. As a result of her negligence, our client sustained severe injuries that he believes are permanent. His medical treatment has led to significant economic losses. Additionally, our client has lost wages due to his time away from work.
Aside from these economic losses, the accident has caused our client to endure a great deal of pain and suffering. Our client’s injuries have significantly impacted his daily life and will likely continue to do so. Consequently, we are seeking compensation from the negligent driver for our client’s current and future damages.
Because the defendant’s liability insurance does not address the full scope of our client’s injuries and damages, we are also seeking a declaratory judgment in his favor stating that he is entitled to uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage through Allstate Insurance Company.
