Too often we find ourselves hurt by someone’s harsh words. Although these verbal attacks may never cause us physical harm, the sticks and stones which are hurled at us in an accident whether intentionally or unintentionally could have harsher consequences. When those physical wounds cause severe damage to our health, it is hard to forgive and forget and why should we? When someone has caused us pain and suffering whether on purpose or accidentally we do not have to take it on the chin, we have a legal right to seek justice and recompense. A neighbour could be carrying out work on his property which secretes harmful gases into the air. These particles could enter the lungs and cause asthma. Workmen could leave a manhole uncovered. You might slip and break a leg because it was not replaced correctly. Wouldn’t you feel anger and resentment if someone did this to you?
