Yesterday, a 70-year-old man was killed by a fallen tree branch in a Carlsbad Community Park, Holiday Park. This tragic accident occurred around 10:30 a.m. Officials told ABC Ten News, “The man was getting out of his car when he was struck by the falling tree branch.” The man was declared dead at the scene of the accident.
The team at Harris Personal Injury Lawyers send our deepest condolences to the friends and family of the deceased man. If you or someone you know has been injured or killed in a public place or community park, you may be entitled to financial compensation. This accident brings the question, were the trees cut properly? Were they trimmed when they were supposed to be? Could this accident have been avoided?
