Sharing experiences of accidents, and the lives they shatter

Stories can make a difference. They can challenge assumptions, help to raise awareness and empower others to make safer choices. They can mean the difference between a happy ending and tragedy.

If you, or someone you love, have suffered a serious accident, why not share your experience with us? Even if you're not a confident writer, but you have a story you think the world needs to hear, please get in touch – after all, your experience might just save a life.
