Is it okay to say It took Mohan Six Months to recover from his Fatal Accident?

No, it isn’t. The word fatal usually has a negative connotation. An accident or an illness that is described as fatal, usually results in the death of an individual. As you probably know, it is difficult for a person to recover from death.

• The ailing chief minister suffered a fatal heart attack around midnight.

• Several policemen were fatally wounded during the encounter with the militants.

The word fatal can also be used to mean undesirable or causing disaster.

• The captain made the fatal mistake of asking Akaka to brown the final over.
