Motor Vehicle Accident in Sylvania, Ohio

Motor Vehicle Accident in Sylvania, Ohio

Nicholas Kubiak v. Farmers Insurance of Columbus, No. CI13-1887

An interesting motor vehicle accident case out of Sylvania, Ohio involving uninsured motorist coverage was decided in Lucas County, Court of Common Pleas, Ohio in Judge Denise Ann Darn's courtroom on September 23, 2014. The case involved a head on collision car accident on Whiteford Road in Sylvania Ohio. The Plaintiff claimed shoulder, leg, neck and back injuries as a result of the accident. The Plaintiff also claimed $27,000 in medical expenses and sought damages for pain and suffering. Following a two (2) day jury trial, the jury returned a verdict of $17,508 over and above the policy limits of the at fault party’s insurance coverage of $12,500.

The uninsured motorist carrier's offer was $2,500. This is a prime example of why it is so important to contact an attorney immediately to represent you with your personal injury case resulting from a motor vehicle accident. The trial of the case by an experienced Toledo Ohio personal injury lawyer resulted in an additional $15,000 in damages being awarded to the Plaintiff in this case.
