On January 11, 2020, our client was driving eastbound along Airport Highway in Lucas County, Ohio. At the same time, the defendant was traveling southbound on Brookview Drive, approaching the intersection of Airport Highway.
When the defendant failed to stop at the stop sign on Brookview Drive, she pulled into oncoming traffic and collided with our client. Because of the force of the collision, our client’s vehicle smashed into a utility pole.
The law enforcement on the scene cited the defendant for failing to yield the right of way. Following the accident, our client was transported by ambulance to Toledo Hospital to evaluate and treat her injuries. Our attorneys at Charles E. Boyk Law Offices hope to recover adequate financial compensation on our client’s behalf.
Establishing the Defendant’s Negligence
The at-fault driver, like all motorists, had a duty to operate her vehicle lawfully to avoid injury to our client and others on the road. Unfortunately, the defendant breached that duty by failing to stop at the posted traffic sign and colliding with our client’s vehicle. The negligent driver caused our client to sustain injuries to her head, face, neck, ribs, ankle, and leg.
Our client believes these injuries are permanent and will require further medical care and costs. Additionally, our client’s children have suffered from this accident as they have been deprived of love, affection, services, parental consortium, and the society of their mother. Our client’s children no longer have the same enjoyment or quality of life due to the defendant’s negligence.
Seeking Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage
Our client was insured by Progressive Casualty Insurance Company at the time of the collision, including an uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage policy. At the time of the crash, the at-fault driver did not have adequate insurance coverage to address the damages our client incurred.
Consequently, our client is filing an uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage claim with Progressive Casualty Insurance Company. We are seeking a declaratory judgment from the court in favor of our client receiving this compensation.
