Jeff Rasansky, managing partner of Rasansky Law Firm, is an aggressive Dallas personal injury lawyer with 25 years of legal experience.

This week we covered the tragic story of a Texas eight-year-old who was killed in a two-vehicle collision in a Southeast Dallas intersection.

We think that it is extremely important to note that the child wasn’t killed directly by the impact of the other car, but rather by a car jack in the van that flew through the air and struck him in the head.

While some may see this as a “freak accident,” we want you to know that unsecured cargo causes literally thousands of injuries and deaths across the United States each year – and most, if not all, of these incidents could have been prevented.

200409959-001Here are just a few recent car accidents that involved unsecured cargo and projectiles:

  • A 25-year-old woman died in a collision with a tow truck when a laptop resting on her back seat flew into the air and struck her in the back of the head.
  • A two-year-old boy was properly secured in a child safety seat when the car he was traveling in was struck by another vehicle. The boy required 400 stitches because a sippy cup in the car struck him in the head during the crash.
  • A 30-year-old woman suffered serious injuries when she was rear-ended on her way home from the grocery store – an unsecured tin can of vegetables struck her in the head.

While it may be difficult to believe that something as small as a can, a cup, or a purse can cause serious injury, you must understand that if a car is struck by a vehicle going 50 miles per hour, even a small object can have hundreds of pounds of force.

We can’t stress this point enough: if you or a loved one has been injured in a Texas vehicle accident, it is vital that you understand what caused the injury and whether it could have or should have been prevented.
