5 injuries caused by shattered glass in car collisions

The shattered glass from your windshield and windows came spraying down on you as your car rolled over on the highway and into a ditch. The presence of blood made you realize just how serious this was. All of this happened because a reckless driver failed to stop at an intersection and smashed into your car.

In such a startling scenario, a list of injuries may occur. From broken bones and severe lacerations to spinal cord and head injuries. But some of the most significant injuries may be as a result of the shards of glass.

Penetrating head injury

Some people may not survive from the severe loss of blood caused by glass-related injuries. That is why immediate medical attention is crucial. Here are some injuries that may occur due to shattered glass:

  • Lacerations: Some may be so severe that they may require surgery. Glass can puncture the torso and limbs, causing significant damage to muscles, tendons, nerves, blood vessels and internal organs.
  • Injuries to the eye: Sharp pieces of glass entering the eye at a high rate of speed may lead permanent vision problems and even blindness.
  • Penetrating head injury: Concussions may be the most common injury. However, sharp pieces of glass can penetrate the skull, leading to brain bleeds. Such an injury can prove fatal.
  • Severed limbs: Large and jagged pieces of glass may penetrate to the bone, leading to significant blood loss and the possible amputation of an arm or leg.
  • Spinal cord injury: Penetrating glass injuries to the neck and spine may lead to a spinal cord injury.

Permanent scarring and disability along with a series of surgeries may be in store for victims of glass injuries. But, please, focus on your recovery.

Seek the compensation you deserve

A reckless driver has upended your life. You deserve compensation for medical costs and lost wages from the responsibility party. A skilled attorney can help you secure that.

I have the utmost respect for Rip Andrews and the lawyers at MRB Law. They took a case that others would have stayed clear of because the issue of state immunity was involved. Through determination and unwavering commitment they were able to a find resolution to an extremely difficult matter.

"They...brought justice to my family through a multi-million dollar verdict ."
These lawyers took a complicated issue, revealed the truth in a way 12 jurors unfamiliar with the topic could understand, and brought justice to my family through a multi-million dollar verdict. They were able to relate my “invisible” medical condition to the jury better than I can to my own friends. And because of that, the jury hugged me and cried with me when it was all over. That meant more to me than any amount of money.
