1938 Cadillac Model 75 General Patton's Crash Car Road accident and death On December 9, 1945, Patton was severely injured in a road accident. He and his chief of staff, Major General Hobart R. "Hap" Gay, were on a day trip to hunt pheasants in the country outside Mannheim, Germany. Their 1938 Cadillac Model 75 was driven by Private First Class Horace L. Woodring (1926--2003), Patton sitting in the back seat on the right side, with General Gay on his left, as per custom. At 11:45 near Neckarstadt (Mannheim-Käfertal), a 2½ ton GMC truck driven by Technical Sergeant Robert L. Thompson made a left turn in front of Patton's Cadillac. Patton's car hit the front of the truck, at a low speed. At first the crash seemed minor, the vehicles were hardly damaged, no one in the truck was hurt, and Gay and Woodring were uninjured. However, Patton was leaning back with trouble breathing. The general had been thrown forward causing his head to strike a metal part of the partition between the front and back seats. This impact inflicted a severe cervical spinal cord injury. Paralyzed from the neck down, he was rushed to the military hospital in Heidelberg, where quadraplegia was diagnosed. Patton died of a pulmonary embolism on December 21, 1945. The funeral service was held at the Christ Church (Christuskirche) in Heidelberg-Südstadt. From Wikipedia

Accidents Involving Paralyzed Arms and Legs Unfortunately, paralyzed arms and legs are a common result of serious accidents such as car wrecks, commercial truck accidents, airplane crashes, and on-the-job railroad accidents. For example, monoplegia occurs when one limb of the body is paralyzed. Paraplegia is when both legs are partially or completely paralyzed. Quadraplegia are when both arms and legs are completely or partially paralyzed. Our firm has handled these types of cases and we guide our patient, or their family, to ensure the proper medical professionals are being consulted. This experience gives our attorneys a proper frame of reference when determining what damages can be obtained in a settlement or through a jury trial.
