A serious injury caused by a road crash is sudden, violent, and often has far-reaching effects on the injured person's life and the lives of their loved ones. This guide can help you deal with many issues that emerge over time. It includes information on financial, practical and emotional help as well as information on criminal processes if the injury was caused by someone else's driving.
