Plaintiff Sues for Injuries Sustained From Automobile Collision in Lucas County, Ohio
On February 26th, 2020, our client, a resident of Sylvania, Lucas County, Ohio, was involved in an automobile collision with a defendant who is a resident of Maumee, Lucas County, Ohio. The accident occurred while the plaintiff was operating her vehicle on the US-23 Southbound entrance ramp in Lucas County, Ohio, and was waiting for merging traffic.
The defendant was on the US-23 Southbound entrance ramp behind the plaintiff and failed to maintain a clear distance between her vehicle and the plaintiff’s vehicle. The Sylvania Police cited the defendant for failure to maintain an assured clear distance. The plaintiff was insured at the time of the collision and exercised the necessary care while driving.
Our client has suffered unnecessary harm and injuries due to the defendant’s negligence. Consequently, Charles E. Boyk Law Offices is seeking proper compensation on our client’s behalf.
Assessing Our Client’s Damages
The negligent party owed the plaintiff a duty of care to operate the vehicle she was driving in accordance with the laws of the State of Ohio and to not operate the car in a manner that would cause injury to the plaintiff. The defendant breached this duty by failing to maintain a clear distance, resulting in a collision with the rear end of the plaintiff’s vehicle.
Our client sustained personal injuries to her left knee, hip, and back. She has also gone through suffering, severe mental anguish, and emotional distress. These injuries are permanent and will require the plaintiff to have ongoing medical care and costs.
Due to the defendant’s negligence and breach of care, our client’s husband is deprived of his wife’s affection, love, and services, as well as the couple’s quality of life and ability to carry on normal activities. The plaintiff and her husband are seeking damages over $25000 with interest, including reasonable attorney fees and costs. During the time of the collision, the defendant was not covered by liability insurance. As a result, our client is bringing a claim for uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage against the defendant’s insurance company for insufficient liability coverage.
