The Aftermath of Pedestrian Crash
Road accidents are not only troublesome for your property or vehicle but your personal well-being also.
Accidents can leave you or your passengers severely injured, disfigured, and permanently disabled. Aside from knowing how to drive safely, it’s also best to know what follows in the event of a road accident.
