On August 10, 2020, our client was driving northbound on the Anthony Wayne Trail in Toledo, Ohio. At the same time, the defendant was driving eastbound on Western Avenue. As our client entered the intersection of the Anthony Wayne Trail and Western Avenue, a negligent motorist ran a red light and drove into our client’s path, causing a T-bone accident.
At the scene of the crash, the other driver was cited for a red-light violation. Following the collision, our client sought medical attention for severe injuries to her head, chest, neck, and back, as well as her left shoulder. At Charles E. Boyk Law Offices, we are working to obtain full compensation on our client’s behalf.
Suing the At-Fault Driver
The defendant in this case owed our client a duty of care to operate her vehicle in accordance with local traffic laws. She breached this duty of care by driving through a red traffic signal and unlawfully entering the intersection.
As a direct result of the negligent motorist’s actions, our client sustained severe injuries that required extensive medical care. Because of this preventable accident, our client has incurred significant financial losses due to medical bills and time missed from work. She has also experienced emotional losses, such as pain, suffering, and mental anguish.
Our client believes these injuries are permanent, meaning she will continue to suffer economic and non-economic losses. Our firm is pursuing a legal claim against the defendant for the full compensation our client needs.
Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Claim
The at-fault driver did not have adequate insurance coverage to address our client’s injuries and losses at the time of the accident. Fortunately, our client was covered by her uninsured/underinsured motorist policy through American Family Insurance Co.
In addition to our claim against the reckless motorists, we are pursuing an uninsured/underinsured motorist claim with our client’s insurer. We hope to obtain a declaratory judgment from the court stating that our client is entitled to coverage through her insurance policy.
