Editorial:  The Risk Issue

Abstract: It seems like every time we get out of bed there is a risk issue. Recently, I saw a female patient who was walking her dog along a road, minding her own business, when a lorry carrying a length of pipe came around the corner of the road: the pipe had been propped up on the top of the cab of the lorry but, on turning the corner, it swung to the left, hitting the woman in the face and causing severe injuries to her face and to her mouth and teeth, the latter actually being the lesser of her life-changing injuries.
