He was admitted to Mafraq Hospital for two weeks, and was later advised complete rest for two months. Permanent injury The Abu Dhabi Civil Court ordered a compensation of Dh800,000 after a medical panel concluded that his injuries are permanent and has caused 100 per cent damage to his spine. The Appeals Court raised the compensation to Dh1 million. Abdul Aziz Karama Al Amiri, the UAE lawyer who appeared for Hamza, said it is one of the biggest compensation amounts his law firm has won for an accident victim. It was a deserving case hence we decided to appear for him even without charging the initial court fee, said Al Amiri who runs Abdul Aziz Al Amiri Lawyers and Legal Consultants firm in Abu Dhabi. Hamza, who is planning to return to India soon, said his only regret was that his elder daughter, aged 21, had to discontinue her medical studies because of financial difficulties.

Police: Driver crashes car into home, smokes cigarette while watching house burn

Car into home

Firefighters say a man lost control of his vehicle, drove through a yard and ended up inside the living room of a house. It didn’t take long for the car and house to go up in flames. “I could hear the screeching of the tires,” neighbor Jo Shields said. “Then I heard people yelling and things falling, bricks and stuff out the house. I looked out the window and saw a very large fire very close to my house.” She and other neighbors say they saw the driver get out of the car. They claim he even pulled out a cigarette as he watched the fire grow. The homeowners, who just recently moved away, arrived soon afterward.

Ellworth Austin said he knew both the volunteer firefighter, Steve Whitcomb, and the daughter, Katie Hamilton. “It’s a terrible tragedy,” said Austin, who, like Whitcomb, runs a plumbing business in Brookline. “It’s Christmas … and everybody is pretty teary-eyed.” The firefighter didn’t recognize his daughter’s body at the time, police chief Bill Quigley told local newspaper The Union Leader . “Her father was the one who pulled her out of the car without knowing it was her,” Quigley said. Hamilton, 30, died of her injuries caused when another vehicle struck hers from behind, pushing it into the opposing lane of traffic, where a third car collided with hers head on, Quigley told WMUR. Hamilton leaves behind not only her father. “I know that she is a young mother,” Quigley said. “It’s a sad, sad day for all of us, not just because it’s Christmas Eve.” In Brookline, almost everyone knows Whitcomb and the tragedy he has suffered. The town of 4,000 holds Hamilton and Whitcomb in high regard, Quigley said. The drivers of the other vehicles were not hurt. Police think the driver of the car that rear-ended Hamilton may have been distracted, the chief said. “We are pretty certain that speed and impairment were not a factor so that would rule it down to driver distraction at this point,” Quigley said.

Florida Car Accident Attorneys at The Berman Law Group Wish a Safe and Happy Holidays

Permanent injury The Abu Dhabi Civil Court ordered a compensation of Dh800,000 after a medical panel concluded that his injuries are permanent and has caused 100 per cent damage to his spine. The Appeals Court raised the compensation to Dh1 million. Abdul Aziz Karama Al Amiri, the UAE lawyer who appeared for Hamza, said it is one of the biggest compensation amounts his law firm has won for an accident victim. It was a deserving case hence we decided to appear for him even without charging the initial court fee, said Al Amiri who runs Abdul Aziz Al Amiri Lawyers and Legal Consultants firm in Abu Dhabi. Hamza, who is planning to return to India soon, said his only regret was that his elder daughter, aged 21, had to discontinue her medical studies because of financial difficulties. I could not afford to pay her fees at that time. If I had this kind of money then my daughter would have become a doctor, said Hamza, who came to the UAE 15 years ago and lives with his wife Shaheena. He has been working for an Abu Dhabi bakery as a salesman and driver for the last seven years.

Street Racing Accident Sends Car Slamming Into Home

No injuries reported after woman drives car into house in Brockton

San Jose Police Sgt. Heather Randol said two cars were involved in the crash, with one, a red Pontiac GTO, smashing into a house on the 3300 block of Cropley Avenue just before 11 a.m. Witnesses said the two vehicles — the other was a Mitsubishi Eclipse — were racing at a high rate of speed, and another unrelated vehicle crashed with one of the suspect’s vehicles. Neighbor David Beck said racing “happens all the time” near his home and that the sound of the accident was so loud “it was if a dumpster were dropped from a three-story building.” “This is a speed haven,” said Beck, who added that a car once spun out in his driveway. The San Jose Fire Department was quickly on the scene to check for structural instability. Photos that firefighters tweeted from the scene showed one car rear-ending a beige home directly under a string of Christmas lights. Police said no one was injured inside the home, but the driver of the GTO is in the hospital with what police are calling mild-to-moderate injuries.

Arsenio Hall ‘Absolutely Fine’ After Car Accident

The fire also spread to a Harley-Davidson dealership and several homes. Rear-end collisions are a common hazard for drivers across the United States. Trucks are involved in a number of these crashes. Rear-end accidents make up about 18 percent of the 400,000 truck crashes that occur each year, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration . Trucks need approximately 40 percent more time than cars to stop because of factors such as weight. They are also less maneuverable and start more slowly. Common causes of rear-end collisions include speeding, driver fatigue, defective brakes, distracted driving, and inclement weather. aRegardless of intention, accidents caused by preventable mistakes often result in liability,a said Perecman.
