On or about October 13, 2020, our client, a resident of Lenawee County, Michigan, was driving eastbound on U.S. 20 near the intersection with State Route 109 in Royalton Township, Fulton County, Ohio. A negligent motorist was driving westbound on the same highway when he failed to yield the right of way and struck our client’s vehicle.
Following the accident, our client was taken to the emergency room for treatment. She suffered serious injuries due to the defendant’s actions, so our lawyers at Charles E. Boyk Law Offices are seeking full compensation on her behalf.
Determining the Other Driver’s Negligence
The defendant had a legal responsibility to follow traffic laws and take caution toward others on the road. Unfortunately, his failure to yield caused our client severe injuries to her abdomen, shoulder, ribs, back, and head. She also incurred great pain and suffering, mental anguish, and emotional distress.
Additionally, our client suffered financial losses due to lost wages and medical expenses. She believes her injuries are permanent and expects to continue incurring economic and non-economic losses. Had the at-fault driver yielded to the right of way, this severe accident could have been avoided.
Pursuing Uninsured/Underinsurance Motorist Coverage
Though the other driver is responsible for our client’s injuries, he does not have adequate insurance to compensate her for her losses. Consequently, our client is pursuing additional compensation through her uninsured/underinsured motorist policy with Progressive Casualty Insurance.
