Injured Toledo Driver Sues for T-Bone Collision Caused by Negligent Driver
On February 28, 2020, our client was driving northbound on Fulton Street in Toledo, Ohio approaching the intersection with Islington Street. At the same time, another motorist was driving eastbound on Islington Street, approaching the same intersection. As our client proceeded into the intersection, the negligent driver failed to stop at his stop sign and struck the driver’s side of our client’s vehicle.
Immediately after the accident, an ambulance transported our client to Mercy St. Vincent Hospital, where she underwent treatment for severe injuries to her face, neck, and left leg. The Toledo Police department arrived at the scene and cited the defendant with a “failure to stop at a stop sign” violation.
Our client suffered serious injuries and unnecessary harm due to the other motorist’s negligence. Our attorneys at Charles E. Boyk Law Offices are fighting for comprehensive compensation on our client’s behalf.
Taking Legal Action Against the Negligent Driver
The defendant in this case owed our client our duty of care to operate his vehicle with caution and abide by all traffic signals. He acted negligently by failing to stop at the posted stop sign and striking our client’s car.
The other driver’s negligence directly caused our client to suffer severe personal injuries. Due to the unfortunate accident, she has incurred medical costs, property damage, and lost wages.
Throughout this process, our client has also experienced pain and suffering, mental anguish, and emotional distress. Because our client believes these injuries are permanent, we are seeking compensation from the defendant to cover her past and future losses.
Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage
At the time of the accident, the defendant did not have adequate insurance coverage to fully compensate our client for her losses. Fortunately, our client carried uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage through her insurer, American Family Insurance Company. We are urging the court to make a declaratory judgment in favor of our client so that she can receive compensation through her insurance policy.
