As long as they fit the rules, all accidents come with the realms of making a personal injury claim for compensation.
The injuries sustained in these accidents can vary greatly in their severity, and the way victims react to them is different as well. Different lifestyles will mean they impact on some lives more than others, just as some victims will recover from an injury quicker than others.
