Man Injured after Flying Saw Blade Crashes through Windshield

By Grant Law Office on December 14, 2012 - Comments off

A Marietta man was injured in a Georgia car accident when a flying saw blade crashed through his windshield. According to a news report in The Marietta Daily Journal, the accident occurred on I-285 in Marietta. Officials say a 14-inch round concrete saw blade went through his windshield. He suffered laceration injuries on his head and wrist. His wrist injury included cuts to three tendons and an artery. Investigators are hoping the serial number on the saw blade will help determine who was responsible for the accident.

There are many ways in which drivers and passengers can get hurt on the roadway. While most accidents result from driver negligence, there are a number of accidents each year that result from objects on the roadway and debris that has fallen off from other vehicles. According to the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, roadway debris causes approximately 25,000 accidents and 100 traffic fatalities each year.

It is not always possible to determine who was responsible for debris on the roadway or who should be held accountable for any resulting accidents. This type of uncertainty can lead to complicated liability cases where the victim is at risk of having to pay for his or her own medical bills.

No one should have to pay for someone else’s negligence. Anyone who has suffered a loss in a car accident would be well advised to discuss his or her legal rights and options with an experienced personal injury lawyer in Georgia who has a long history of successfully handling complex car accident cases. Financial support may be available for medical bills, hospitalization fees, surgical procedures, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other related damages. Victims need a knowledgeable attorney who understands how auto insurance policies apply to roadway debris cases and other incidents where the at-fault motorist has not been identified or found.
