Road debris injury
Another article that made the news was story on personal injury due to road debris; the news report stated that a couple travelling on the Florida interstate was seriously injured by a piece of debris.
“According to the report on the couple was travelling southbound on the Interstate 95 when the accident occurred. Ms. Jones who was driving at the time recalls that by the time she realized that they were going to be hit it was too late to swerve to avoid the flying debris and Raymond was struck in the face. She stated that she never thought it would have been such a huge piece of metal. Raymond was struck in the face damaging his throat and mouth causing him to bleed and drift in and out of consciousness. Mr. Sewell was treated at the hospital and later released; he received stitches to the mouth and will also require dental work as the impact of the metal object caused several of his front teeth to get knocked out.”
Question anyone in this situation would ask is “Can I seek compensation for the injuries and medical bills that I have incurred? And if the answer to that first question was YES then who do I file the claim against and how do I proceed?” As an attorney practicing personal injury law in Fort Lauderdale, we have represented victims of these types of injury and been successful.
One can only assume that this couple sought legal counsel and filed claim against city or state that would have been responsible for maintenance of the Interstate where they were injured. Proper record of all his injuries would be most beneficial when filing the claim, a copy of the accident report from the police, and seeing that he would have required dental work, all his dental bills would also be necessary to file claim and be properly compensated for all his damages etc.
