At the risk of making our world seem overly dangerous, an injury can occur in a wide array of situations and locations. Most people never see an incident coming, but as we all know, that is an accident is most likely to happen.
Many of these accidents result in little or no harm to the victim. However, sometimes the worst happens, leaving the victim with a significant personal injury. For example, tripping on a loose or frayed rug can result in a fall. If you hit your head when you fall, a brain injury could occur. Such an injury typically means at least some amount of current and future medical care is necessary for recovery.
