Riverwatch Parkway Crash Leads to the Deaths of Three Children


June 22, 2015

Tragic accidents continue to plague Georgia this year, as three young children recently passed away following a horrific car accident, according to WRDW TV in Savannah. Just last week, a pickup truck collided with a smaller Toyota as the Toyota was turning left at the intersection of Riverwatch Parkway and Stevens Creek Road. It is difficult to determine who may be at fault for causing this accident that ended the lives of three innocent children. While one child tragically died shortly after the accident, two other children passed away days later, making this particular accident especially painful for family members.

How the Location of Impact Can Affect the Severity of any Injuries Suffered

The Riverwatch Parkway accident demonstrates how the location of impact in any accident can be a key factor in affecting the severity of resulting injuries. The children in this recent accident were sitting in the backseat, and the pickup truck hit the Toyota on the rear passenger side of the car, closest to where the children were sitting. Had the location of impact been anywhere else on the car, the children might have survived. The location of impact in any accident, as well as the types of injuries sustained, can rarely (if ever) be predicted, so injuries suffered in car accidents range from minor to life-threatening.

These innocent young children were simply in the wrong place at the wrong time. When the cause of any accident is questionable, it often takes quite a long time to reconstruct what truly happened. In this particular situation, if any of the children's parents believe a driver involved is to blame for the accident, they can file wrongful death claims against someone who is at fault.

Given the complicated nature certain car accidents can have, working alongside a personal injury attorney is one of the best decisions you can make if you choose to pursue legal action to recover for the injuries you have suffered. Many injured victims wait too long to pursue legal action, and when this happens, it may be too late to file a lawsuit, and you may not be able to bring a claim in the future. The only way to know for sure whether or not your injuries can be linked to another driver's conduct is to have the matter evaluated by a skilled legal professional who can evaluate the facts and circumstances of your case as well as determine what steps are necessary to preserve your legal rights.
