Officer Saved by Helmet

It’s highly possible that Officer Richard “Brad” Starnes’ life was spared because he was wearing a helmet at time he got into an incident with a driver that he pulled over, who ended up dragging him and running him over.

On Tuesday Officer Starnes pulled over a vehicle driven by Clay and Maurice Cash, and when they attempted to drive off Officer Starnes reacted, reaching into the vehicle to either take the keys or put the car in park.  At that time, one of the suspects pulled him into the car as it began taking off.  Officer Starnes managed to free himself, and the patrol car’s dash camera recorded how his helmet hit the pavement once he managed to free himself.

Officer Starnes suffered a broken leg in the accident.

No one plans on having an accident, or suffering injuries when they get into their vehicle to go to work or do their job, but accidents still happen every day, even when all precautions are taken. If you have been injured, be it in a car, motorcycle or truck accident, or any other serious personal injury claim, you don’t have to go through these difficult situations alone.

Client remains responsible for costs, expenses and disbursements, including medical bills, within the scope of representation.
