On February 25, our client was driving eastbound on a multi-lane road in Toledo, Lucas County, Ohio. While our client was traveling in the right lane, a negligent motorist in the center lane drifted to the right and struck the driver’s side of his vehicle.
Though our client was wearing a seatbelt, he still sustained severe injuries in the collision. Consequently, he was brought to The Toledo Hospital for emergency medical treatment. Meanwhile, at the scene of the accident, the other driver was cited for a marked lanes violation.
Establishing the Negligence of the Other Motorist
The negligent driver owed our client a duty of care to operate her vehicle in accordance with state laws and traffic patterns. Unfortunately, she breached that duty by driving recklessly and striking our client’s car. Additionally, the defendant’s marked lanes violation constitutes negligence per se, which further establishes her liability for the accident.
Seeking Damages for Our Client
The other motorist caused our client to suffer severe injuries to his neck and back. In addition to his physical pain, our client has suffered substantial financial losses due to his required medical treatment. He has also experienced significant emotional distress and mental anguish as a result of the accident. This accident has completely altered our client’s way of life.
Unfortunately, our client and his medical team believe his injuries are permanent, meaning he will continue to suffer physical and emotional pain and financial losses due to the defendant’s negligent actions. On behalf of our client, we are pursuing compensation for all his current and future mental, emotional, and physical damages.
