Permanent damage injuries can occur anywhere, from the workplace to the road. Workplace hazards that can result in this type of injury include slipping, tripping, having cargo fall on you or even falling if you work in construction.
On the roads, collisions between vehicles, pedestrian accidents and environmental hazards are the main causes of injuries.
Other places that these injuries can occur include hospitals, private residencies and even public entertainment establishments, such as malls and restaurants.

As a matter of fact, if you were responsible and the other party was injured, they may qualify for compensation.
