McClure Driver Seeks Compensation for Injuries Sustained in Rear-End Collision
On May 21, 2019, our client was driving westbound on U.S. Route 6 in McClure, Henry County, Ohio. He stopped his vehicle and prepared to turn left onto West Street when a negligent driver rear-ended him. The impact pushed our client’s vehicle into oncoming traffic, and he was struck by a semi-truck.
After the accident, our client was transported by ambulance to Henry County Hospital for treatment. Due to the reckless driver’s actions, our client has suffered severe injuries. Consequently, our legal team at Charles E. Boyk Law Offices is seeking compensation on our client’s behalf.
Pursuing a Claim Against the At-Fault Driver
The negligent motorist who rear-ended our client had a responsibility to operate his vehicle safely and lawfully. However, he breached his duty of care when he failed to maintain an assured clear distance between him and our client.
Because of the defendant’s negligence, our client has suffered severe injuries to his head, neck, chest, and back. Our client underwent significant medical treatment following the accident, resulting in expensive medical bills, lost wages, and other economic losses. He has also been dealing with pain and suffering, mental anguish, and emotional distress.
Our client also believes his injuries are permanent and will result in future losses. Due to our client’s severe injuries and damages, our legal team is pursuing a legal claim against the at-fault driver for compensation.
Seeking Compensation From Our Client’s Insurer
Because the defendant’s auto insurance will not fully cover our client’s losses, we are also seeking compensation through our client’s uninsured/underinsured motorist policy with American Family Insurance Company. We hope to secure a declaratory judgment from the court stating that our client has the right to collect compensation through his insurance policy.
