Fatal Accidents in Green Island
Whenever a pedestrian is struck by a car, it is always the pedestrian who incurs the more serious or even deadly injuries. The initial impact caused by the car’s contact with the pedestrian and the subsequent impact of the force knocking the pedestrian down and smashing against the asphalt or sidewalk could cause severe injuries such as penetrating head wounds, spinal cord damage leading to paralysis, ruptured internal organs, and broken bones.
These kinds of injuries almost always have strong emotional and financial consequences on the victims as well as their families.
