Life is constantly changing and challenging for human beings, sometimes it is on an upward trend and sometimes downward, however every individual strives to overcome any challenges and obstacles they may face and try to overcome them on a daily basis for their own betterment.
In contemporary society, people live in a fast moving digital communication and transportation age where individuals are constantly on the move, to/from work, home, family visit, holidays, abroad and so on. It is inevitable that in such a rapid moving environment where everybody is always ‘on the go’ that accidents and incidents may occur occasionally, especially on the road with automobiles, either as a driver, passenger or a passerby. Sometimes these incidents maybe minor in nature with little medical injury, whilst on other occasions people maybe seriously injured in a life threatening manner from vehicle accidents.
Consequently, it is important that during any accidents that some basic health and safety measures are undertaken to immediately protect individuals from further harm and deal with any injuries sustained by the use of appropriate medical treatment from the emergency doctor or hospital service, and any subsequent outcomes are professionally, legally dealt with by the necessary experts (police, authorities, insurance companies, legal).
The impact of an accident can be traumatic, leading to physical, mental and psychological effects causing medium-long term damage, irrespective of whether the incident occurs in a car, cycling, walking or as a passerby. Situations which lead to long term injury with a delayed healing process, more permanent in nature can have wider consequences besides the medical treatment, such as loss of earnings, impact on social life, recurring medication, and so on.

Depending upon the type of accident, extent of medical injuries, long term effects, etc it is difficult to generalise these incident payouts, as each case is unique, and the potential compensation claim could vary considerably from person to person.
Financial compensation payouts could be diverse, and depending upon the type of medical injuries sustained the award could be broken up into two or three stages, thus allowing individuals to cope with any short term problems they may have.
Medical rehabilitation, recovery and treatment may become complicated for serious injuries, and unfortunately in some cases it may lead to fatalities. All the different scenarios arising and the complexities involved may mean ongoing payments to cover medical, travel and accommodation costs in the interim periods is necessary; in some cases another family / friend may need to act on the behalf of a severely injured person. Specialists, Physiotherapists or institutes may need to be employed specifically too.
