On July 29, 2020, our client, a box truck operator in Toledo, Ohio, was traveling eastbound on U.S. 20 in Sylvania Township. At that time, a negligent semi-truck driver traveling westbound on U.S. 20 crossed left of center and collided head-on with our client.
The force of the collision caused our client’s vehicle to roll onto its side. Consequently, our client was trapped in the vehicle and had to be extricated by others. Once first responders arrived, our client was taken to Toledo Hospital, where he was treated for severe personal injuries to his head, arm, leg, hip, and shoulder.
The at-fault truck driver received a citation for operating a tractor-trailer without reasonable control. The defendant’s negligence directly caused serious injury to our client. As such, our attorneys at Charles E. Boyk Law Offices are doing everything we can to seek compensation for him and his spouse.
Assessing Our Clients’ Damages
The negligent truck driver had a responsibility to exercise caution and care for the safety and welfare of others while operating the commercial motor vehicle. It is clear he breached this duty of care, as he was issued a traffic violation.
Huge Transportation, LLC is also liable for the collision because the driver was an employee at the time of the accident and companies are responsible for the negligent actions of their employees.
Due to the driver’s negligence, our client has suffered serious injuries that required emergency medical care. He incurred substantial medical care costs, other economic losses, pain and suffering, and mental and emotional distress.
Our client’s spouse has also suffered a loss of consortium, including diminished quality of life. She is no longer able to carry out daily activities with her spouse. If the Huge Transportation driver had shown more care and caution on the road, our client’s injuries could have been avoided. Our legal team is fighting for compensation from both the at-fault driver and his employer to cover our clients’ injuries and losses.
