One of our clients was stopped on I-75 in Toledo, Ohio when another driver rear-ended him. After the collision, our client pulled over to acquire the other driver’s information. In response to the accident, the other driver fled the site of the collision leaving our client unable to obtain his information.
This collision caused serious injuries to our client. He suffered life-long injuries to his head, neck, and back and needed medical treatment following the accident.
In May of 2018, the driver who fled the scene reported the incident to the police and claimed the collision was caused by another driver colliding with his vehicle and then also leaving the scene.
After this complex situation came to rise, we worked with our client to file a multi-pronged lawsuit for an amount. This lawsuit is on claims of negligence, negligent entrustment, loss of consortium and declaratory relief.
The complaint is being filed against the driver who struck our client, the unidentified other drivers who struck the negligent driver, and the insurance company of the driver who struck our client. Additionally, we are requesting that the court grant punitive damages against the driver for fleeing the scene of an accident.
