Long-Term Disability as the Result of an Accident
Accidents can happen anywhere. In many cases, an accident is just that — a turn of events which nobody could have foreseen or prevented, leaving small injuries. However, in other situations the actions or lack of action from one person or an organisation could lead to dramatic, long lasting and catastrophic damage to another person or party.
From broken bones, muscular damage and short-term injuries such as whiplash, the effects of an accident may be painful, but the sufferer has the peace of mind of knowing that their injuries are short-lived. However, in other circumstances even the most innocuous of accidents could cause a permanent condition or disability to the victim.
If you or a loved one have suffered permanent injuries as the result of the actions of another person, you may be able to make a compensation claim in Stoke Newington.
Our bodies and their various abilities are amazing, and often taken for granted. An accident can quickly change those abilities, and depending on the severity of the accident the changes could be permanent.
From spinal or head injuries which could lead to a lack of feeling or movement in the limbs to accidents which cause a part of the body to be lost or amputated, the significant factor is that once the abilities of the body are compromised, life for the injured party can never be the same.
As debilitating as those physical injuries have the potential to be, many people have the benefit that aside from not being able to move or do as much as they could before, they are still “themselves.” However, some injuries may change more than the physical ability of the sufferer. These injuries could include head or brain injuries which affect the way the brain processes information.
From side effects such as seizures to life altering injuries which leave the sufferer in a permanent vegetative state, mental injuries can be devastating
Making a Compensation Claim in Stoke Newington
The permanent effects or disabilities which may occur as a result of a serious accident may mean that life for the sufferer and their families is severely affected. The injured person may need to give up work (or at the very least have assistance as they earn a living), they may need assistance with everyday tasks and they may need long-term care.
In the event that another person caused these injuries, you can make a compensation claim in Stoke Newington. This compensation claim in Stoke Newington could provide support for you and your family as you come to terms with life.
