Accidents of any kind can result in varying degrees of injury. Minor injuries such as cuts, bruises, and light burn injuries heal quickly with little to no medical care and therefore require no compensation. Catastrophic injuries, however, can turn a victim's life upside down. These injuries result in lasting damage and impairment that requires extensive medical treatment, which can leave an innocent accident victim facing serious financial hardship unless a fair settlement or trial verdict is won through a personal injury claim.
