A personal injury can happen in many bizarre ways. As reported by the New York Times, one of the oddest incidents leading to severe injuries and scarring was caused by a group of New York teenagers who thought throwing a frozen turkey at a car seemed like a good idea back in November of 2004. The frozen turkey struck the driver causing her severe injuries. Luckily, with the help of a passenger, the car was kept under control and no one else was injured.
There can be little argument that the injured woman was entitled to pursue civil remedies against the negligent teenager who threw the turkey and, likely, his accomplices. In fact, the story reports that she and her lawyers planned to file a civil suit and that there was a criminal price to pay for the teenagers as well.
May your travels this Thanksgiving be uneventful, but if you are injured by another’s negligence or reckless behavior, know that Barsumian Law is only a phone call away for a free consultation about your legal options.
