Sutton is a very common name that pops up several times on a map of the UK. A place with this name exists in Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Cheshire (in more than one place), Essex and Kent. In addition to this, there are other place names that have the word Sutton in them, such as Sutton Scotney in Hampshire and Sutton on the Hill in Derbyshire. So if you were to say you had a Sutton accident, you could in reality be talking about any of these locations and even some others as well.
But of course, the location of your accident won’t matter as much as what happened and how it occurred. An accident is a shock to the system and one that might take some time to recover from. You may end up feeling very vulnerable for a while, and that is very understandable in the end.
The consequences of an accident
There can be both physical and mental results from an accident of any kind. You also have to think about whether it is possible to make a full recovery from whatever happened. You might find you feel very upset and on edge for a while. Some drivers find they cannot get back into a vehicle again following an accident, for example.
In other cases, the loss of a limb or even partial or total paralysis can have a significant effect on how someone lives their life from that moment on. This can mean the person can no longer work – or at least be unable to do the job they did before.
