While, there are some people who are involved in a small road accident where they have sustained minor injuries chose not to file a case as they can pay for the bills and believed that the property damaged dealt to them is miniscule and there is no value to their claim. But, contrary to their belief and for the purpose of exercising their rights, they are eligible to file for an injury claim even if they have only sustained minor injury as injury claim is for victims of negligence and has sustained injuries, may it be major or even minor.
