is among the most important health problems in the world, every day approximately 16,000 people die from it. Furthermore, for every person dying from personal injuries, there are hundreds more that sustain non-fatal personal injuries and other health consequences.
Decreasing the burden of personal injury is among the most challenging issues for public health in the 21st century. Needless to say, the ultimate goal must be to prevent personal injuries from happening in the first place, yet it is also important to work effectively on the cases where personal injury has, after all, occurred.
Risk for disability and ill-health should be reduced in those cases, where prevention effort has prevailed. Quality support and care services to victims are crucial as a part of response to all injuries, intentional and unintentional alike. These can prevent future personal injuries and reduce the extent of both short-term and long-term disability. It can also help those affected to cope with the impact of the personal injury on their lives.
The World Health Organization states that this harm will only be minimised when the victim’s medical, psychological, social and legal needs are all met. The health sector alone cannot offer services to meet all these needs. It is crucial, therefore, for individuals to seek help, assistance and compensation.
