Driver in Raymond Injured by Flying Ice
Just before 12:30 p.m. on January 5th, a piece of ice dislodged from the top of a box truck on Route 101 in Raymond, injuring the driver of a tractor trailer behind it. The driver suffered injuries to his face and hands when the ice shattered his windshield. He was transported to Elliot Hospital in Manchester for treatment.
Ice flying off of larger vehicles including SUVs and box trucks is nothing unusual during the winter in New Hampshire. But when these chunks of flying debris cause injury, who can be held liable for damages? Unfortunately, there is no easy answer to this question and, knowing this, insurance companies are often quick to offer settlements in an effort to avoid legal action. However, accepting a settlement before speaking with an experienced personal injury attorney is almost certain to result in insufficient compensation.
