We never think anything bad will happen to us in life – at least nothing bad enough to completely change it in terms of our health. However we do realise that accidents can and do happen. In some cases these accidents can be life-changing in terms of the injuries people are left with.
You may recently have been involved in an accident that has left you with injuries that will affect you for the rest of your life. For example, a severely-broken leg could leave you with a limp and the inability to walk very far from this moment on. At the other end of the scale, a more serious back injury could leave you paralysed and in a wheelchair, with a very different future ahead of you.
Adjusting to a different life
Coming to terms with what has happened is a major undertaking. Furthermore it can be harder still if you were not to blame for what happened to you. For example, you may have been injured by someone who was driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. They may have crashed their car into you, leaving you paralysed or otherwise left with long-term injuries as a result.
Similarly, there are rare occasions that crop up where employers do not take adequate care to protect their employees from injury. In these cases, there have been instances where people have suffered a fall from height due to inadequate safety measures. Similarly there have been other accidents where people have lost limbs or been otherwise seriously injured and left with injuries that will never fully resolve themselves.
