Toledo Residents Sue for Injuries Sustained by Defendant’s Reckless Driving Under the Influence
On September 3, 2019, our clients, residents of Toledo, Ohio, sustained injuries while driving. The defendant failed to keep a proper lookout, resulting in a rear-end collision at a high rate of speed. Following the accident, our clients were taken to the hospital for treatment.
Our clients sustained serious injuries, severe mental anguish, and emotional distress due to the defendant’s reckless driving while under the influence. As a result, our attorneys at Charles E. Boyk Law Offices are seeking adequate compensation on their behalf.
Evaluating Our Clients’ Damages
The defendant owed our clients a duty of care to operate the vehicle she was driving lawfully and safely. The defendant, however, breached these duties by driving negligently, failing to pay adequate attention, and driving under the influence of an intoxicating substance. Due to the defendant’s negligence, our clients sustained permanent injuries, significant pain and suffering, and severe mental anguish.
Our clients’ physical damage includes injuries to their right shoulder, neck, back, and head. Further, our clients incurred hospital and medical care costs and other economic losses as a direct response to the defendant’s negligence.
Had the defendant shown a proper and adequate level of care by not driving recklessly, our clients’ injuries and damages could have been avoided. Our lawyers at Charles E. Boyk Law Offices hope to secure the appropriate compensation to cover all our clients’ past, present, and future damages.
