Types of Serious Injury Claim
Serious injury covers any injury resultant of an accident which has led or will lead to considerable and long-term impact on your lifestyle.

Those who have suffered back injuries may require help with mobility, such as wheelchairs or crutches, and those with serious back injuries may be prevented from working in the future.
