Many injured survivors of serious car accidents are determined by medical analysis to have come very close to death due to the nature of their injuries. Internal injuries are among the most serious types that individuals can sustain in any motor vehicle accident. These, in a number of cases, leave patients walking a fine line between losing their life and surviving a crash.
Recently, an accident involving the brother of double-amputee Olympian Oscar Pistorius made headlines after he sustained near fatal internal injuries.

Even when prompt medical attention is received however, symptoms such as internal bleeding can progress fast and cause additional serious health complication such as respiratory failure. This was shown in the case of Carl Pistorius, who reportedly sustained cuts to his heart and liver in the head on collision.
Those who are involved in near fatal car accidents caused by the negligence or misconduct of other drivers, are typically placed in a tough financial predicament in addition to having to deal with prolonged physical pain and suffering. Mounting debt from the costs of medical treatment and rehabilitation should be the last thing those recovering from serious injuries should have to deal with. They need someone on their side to fight for their rights to compensation for any damages they have incurred as a result of an accident.
