Serious Personal Injuries
A serious injury is a permanent life-changing disability that may require extensive medical treatment, rehabilitation, ongoing support and care. It could stop you working, and have huge financial implications for you and your family.
They might involve damage to the spinal cord or brain, serious burns, amputation or multiple orthopaedic injuries. In some cases, they could be result in the death of a loved one, leaving family members to try and cope. The injuries could be sustained in a road traffic accident, at work or in a public place.
