Traffic Accident will always cost something. For some unfortunate victim it is his/her life. For those who are fortunate to survive with injuries, some lost a limb, hand or an eye. Many seriously injured will survive, perhaps barely after prolonged treatment in the hospital. Those who get permanent disability will need further physiotherapy, artificial limbs and even change in their very occupation, profession and life style.
Whatever the result of the accident, one thing is certain and that is it is costly to be involved in any accident.
Here we attempt to analyze the cost factor in the treatment of injured victims.
