What Are The Most Common Injuries Your Firm Encounters?
Whenever a moving vehicle hits a person‚ even at the slowest speeds‚ the damage can range from moderate to catastrophic. Unfortunately‚ in most cases we have witnessed‚ speeding is involved that made injuries worse. In addition‚ injuries often depend on where the person was struck and their size. If a car runs over a person’s foot‚ or their leg‚ the damage won’t be as life-threatening. On the other hand‚ if a person’s body is struck head-on‚ the damage could be extensive. Here some of the injuries that often happen when pedestrians get struck by cars:
- Damage to the head‚ neck and spinal column Serve abrasions and lacerations
- Simple and compound fractures
- Moderate to severe head trauma
- Internal organ damage or rupture
