Take a look at this.. http://www.app.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=2008807310583 Errant golf ball scores $725,000 settlement FARMINGDALE An Eatontown man has been awarded $725,000 for an eye injury he suffered after being struck by flying glass when a golf ball traced back to the Eagle Oaks Golf and Country Club here struck his car window. Thomas Guhl will receive $650,000 from the golf club and an additional $37,500 each from a landscaping company and a Farmingdale man who were also named in the suit because the ball was alleged to have been on the resident's lawn as it was being mowed. The suit had charged the resident, Carl Capoano, and the landscaping company, Canfield Lawn and Landscaping, had some culpability in Guhl's injury because they had not taken precautions to guard against the possibility the lawn mower could have launched the golf ball. In essence, the suit argued they had an obligation to check the lawn for the golf ball before allowing the power mower to be used. The suit reserved the greatest culpability for the golf club, claiming netting to keep golf balls from flying on to Asbury Avenue should have been in place. The defendants in the case made no admissions of liability under the terms of the settlement. The suit stemmed from a May 24, 2006, incident where Guhl was struck in the eye by flying glass when a golf ball struck his car as he drove along Asbury Avenue in Farmingdale, said Norman M. Hobbie, the attorney who represented Guhl. "Immediately after he was injured, Mr. Guhl pulled over and noticed a cut range ball from Eagle Oaks in his car seat," Hobbie said. "He also saw a lawn care worker riding a mower by a house on Asbury Avenue." Hobbie said the golf ball had apparently been hit on to the resident's lawn and then propelled by the lawnmower into Guhl's car. Guhl was treated at Jersey Shore University Medical Center in Neptune and later at Wills Eye Hospital in Philadelphia for a cut cornea in his right eye, Hobbie said. Expert reports prepared by physicians determined the visual acuity in the injured eye had dropped from 20/20 vision to 20/100, Hobbie said. A person with 20/100 vision can see detail from 20 feet away the same as a person with normal eyesight would see it from 100 feet away. "He has also lost depth perception and will probably need a corneal transplant in the future," Hobbie said. The golf club referred a call seeking comment to its attorney. Calls to David Molnar, the attorney representing the golf club, were not returned. The attorneys representing Capoano and the landscaper could not be reached for comment. Capoano declined comment.
