Our Buckfire & Buckfire car accident lawyers recently settled a case on behalf of a client who was injured when his brother ran a red light in Toledo, Ohio, and crashed into another vehicle that was rightfully crossing the intersection at that time. Our client was a passenger in his brother’s vehicle. The truck that he was riding in rolled over as a result of the intersection collision.
Our client lost consciousness at the scene of the accident and was taken by ambulance to St. Vincent Hospital in Toledo. He was treated and released following x-rays and MRI Scans, however he complained of pain in his neck and back following the crash. He then followed up with his primary care doctor seven days later and was prescribed six months of physical therapy for his neck and back. The physical therapy and other conservative treatments were not successful and he thereafter received seven steroid injections around his spine. Due to the accident and his resulting injuries, he remained off work for two years. His PIP carrier, Frankenmuth, paid for two years of lost wages.
