Lucas County Driver Sues for Injuries Arising From a Chain Reaction Automobile Collision
On February 2, 2020, in Toledo, Lucas County, Ohio, one of our clients was in a chain reaction automobile collision caused by another driver. Our client was traveling eastbound on Central Avenue and was properly slowing to stop as she approached the intersection of Central and Exmoor Drive. The driver of a vehicle behind her failed to bring his vehicle to a stop, leading to a rear-end collision with our client. In turn, our client was then pushed into the rear of the vehicle that was stopped in front of her. The Ottawa Hills Police confirmed the defendant’s failure to maintain a safe assured clear distance. As a direct result, our client sustained serious injuries, including headaches and injury to their right shoulder, requiring medical attention and resulting expenses.
The plaintiff suffered very significant personal injuries, damages, and stress due to the defendant’s negligence. At Charles E. Boyk Law Offices, our experienced attorneys are seeking compensation for our client.
Assessing Our Client’s Damages
The defendant had a duty to operate his vehicle with care and caution. His failure to keep a proper lookout, provide a safe distance between vehicles, and bring his vehicle to a proper stop resulted in a rear-end collision that caused personal injuries to our client. Our client had to undergo medical care for injuries, including surgery, and incurred expenses as a result. The plaintiff believes the injuries are permanent in nature, which will require more medical care and costs in the future.
If the defendant had followed the State of Ohio and the City of Toledo driving laws, our client’s injuries and damages could have been avoided. We hope to receive compensation to cover of all of the costs of our client’s current and future pain and suffering.
