On July 6th, 2020, our client, a resident of Lucas County, Ohio, was riding in the passenger seat of a car as the driver entered the Expresso Car Wash on Central Avenue in Toledo, Lucas County, Ohio. The motorist positioned his car onto the entrance ramp, allowing the automated system to move his vehicle through the car wash. At the same time, a negligent driver drove through the ramp and struck the rear of our client’s vehicle.
The force of the collision caused the car to get pushed off the ramp, resulting in harm to our client. Following the accident, our client was taken to ProMedica Toledo Hospital to treat serious injuries to her shoulder and back.
Given the consequences of this accident, the legal team at Charles E. Boyk Law Offices is seeking compensation from the at-fault driver. Because the negligent motorist did not have adequate liability insurance to cover our client’s losses, we are also pursuing compensation through the rear-ended driver’s uninsured/underinsured motorist policy.
Assessing Our Client’s Damages
The reckless driver owed our client a duty of care to operate his vehicle safely. He breached this duty by failing to follow the instructions outlined by Expresso Car Wash and colliding with another vehicle.
As a result of this negligence, our client sustained severe injuries that required professional medical care. This accident caused our client to incur significant medical expenses, pain, suffering, mental anguish, emotional distress, and other economic losses.
Furthermore, our client believes these injuries will be permanent and expects the economic losses and emotional distress to persist. Our attorneys are fighting for compensation to cover our client’s current and future damages.
Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Claim
At the time of the accident, the reckless driver did not have adequate insurance coverage to compensate our client for her injuries and damages. Fortunately, the driver of the rear-ended vehicle was covered by an uninsured/underinsured motorist policy with MetLife Auto & Home Insurance Agency, Inc. Our team is seeking a declaratory judgment from the court in favor of our client receiving compensation through this insurance policy.
