On October 15, 2020, our client was driving in the leftmost lane on a road in Toledo, Lucas County, Ohio. At all times, our client was properly wearing his seat belt. The defendant was driving on the same road and merged into the far-left lane, nearly hitting our client’s vehicle and forcing our client to swerve into the center median wall.
Our client sustained serious injuries to his neck and back. He underwent medical treatment and incurred medical costs, in addition to experiencing significant pain, severe mental anguish, and emotional distress.
The injuries sustained by our client could have been easily avoided if the reckless driver had shown the necessary precaution on the road. As a result of the defendant’s actions and the resulting injuries sustained by our client, the attorneys at Charles E. Boyk Law Offices are seeking compensation on our client’s behalf.
Assessing Our Client’s Damages
The defendant owed our client a duty of care to operate her vehicle in accordance with Ohio traffic laws. She breached this duty by failing to properly switch lanes, ultimately forcing our client to swerve his car into the center median wall.
The defendant was cited by the Toledo Police Department under the Ohio Revised Code section 4511.33 for a marked lane violation. This is further evidence of the defendant’s negligence.
This negligence resulted in great injury to our client, and he incurred significant medical care costs. He believes that his injuries are permanent in nature and that he will require future medical care, and will also continue to experience pain and emotional distress because of the actions of the defendant.
