Mother Pursues Damages Following Fatal Motorcycle Accident in Lucas County
On December 6th, 2020, a motorcyclist was driving eastbound on Bayshore Road in Lucas County, Ohio. At the same time, a driver in a pickup truck was traveling northbound on North Stadium Road approaching Bayshore Road. The negligent truck driver failed to stop at the posted stop sign and struck the motorcyclist.
Due to the force of the collision, the motorcycle rider was ejected from his vehicle. Unfortunately, his injuries were fatal. The attorneys at Charles E. Boyk Law Offices are representing the decedent’s mother—the administrator of his estate—as she seeks justice for her son’s death.
Assessing Our Client’s Damages
The defendant had a responsibility to operate his pickup truck with caution and follow traffic laws. He completely neglected this responsibility by refusing to stop and yield to traffic. This carelessness led to the death of our client’s son, who left behind three daughters.
The decedent’s passing has weighed a heavy toll on the surviving family members. They have experienced significant lifestyle changes and hardship without the deceased’s love, support, and guidance. Our client and her family have also suffered great anguish and emotional trauma due to the unexpected loss.
Additionally, our client is pursuing a survival action, as the decedent’s clothes, motorcycle, and portable electronics were destroyed in that crash. The mother has filed suit for punitive damages as well.
