If you were injured in an accident that was not your own fault while you were already receiving support from the government for a separate condition altogether, you may undoubtedly be confused and somewhat stressed. You'll certainly want to recover as best as you can from your unexpected injuries, but you may also be worried that any compensation due to you might impact your social security benefits.

Why Biking to Work Can Represent a Serious Risk

A growing number of Australians are seeking to get fit while they endure the commute back and forth to work. And instead of taking the car, they have invested in a bicycle. This will enable them to burn some calories and work up some enthusiasm for the day ahead and they can often avoid some of the worst congestion suffered by their car-mounted friends. However, this type of transportation does not come without its own risks and accidents do happen.
