John Doe, a weekend warrior, looked forward to building a cement walkway on a beautiful Saturday morning. A cement mixing truck arrived as requested. Doe guided the cement mixer into proper position. He instructed the driver to slowly pull forward while simultaneously dumping cement while he raked the cement. Unfortunately, the driver got in the mixing truck and suddenly negligently reversed the vehicle into Doe. Doe’s body was thrown into the garage wall where his arm was trapped amongst stucco and wire. Emergency rescue was required to extricate his mangled arm from the construction wire. Doe was rushed to the trauma center in dire condition.Upon arrival at the hospital, trauma specialists focused their attention on saving his mangled arm from amputation. Miraculously, the doctors successfully were able to achieve blood flow and prevent amputation. Unfortunately, as a result of the impact from the vehicle, Doe suffered optic neuropathy in both eyes. Basically, the optic nerve which sends messages between the eyes and brain and allows people to see suffered irreversible inflammation.
