Unfortunately accidents that were not our fault can happen to us all. We could slip, trip or fall when we are out or we could be involved in a car crash or bus accident. Things can even go wrong when we are receiving medical treatment.
When we are the victims of those accidents we are left coping with not only the physical and psychological effects but also the financial worries. Maybe we cannot work at all or not as many hours as we used to. Maybe we have to buy in extra help with childcare or household chores.
