Sometimes luck just doesn’t seem to be on our side and you may find yourself involved in an accident that isn’t your fault. The accident may end with a minor injury that heals itself within time, or, in some cases you may end up living with an injury that causes you some severe discomfort and effects your everyday life such as a non fault spine injury.
You may found yourself the victim of a road traffic accident, or a serious slip or fall in a public place, perhaps you are injured at work using equipment that is faulty, or performing tasks that you have not had adequate training for. Where ever the accident you may end up with an injury that is difficult to live with.
