Everyone knows someone who always seems to be having an accident and is always at the doctors or in hospital. But, what are examples of five claims for accident prone people?
These are one of the easiest accidents to have, and not surprisingly are at the top of the list of five claims for accident prone people. All it takes is a loose paving slab or a spillage to cause a slip, trip or fall injury. But, there are so many different slip, trip and fall claims which accident prone people are likely to have.
From a petrol or oil spill to an icy puddle or a slippery marble floor; slip injuries are common especially amongst those prone to accidents. Even if you have grips on your shoes, if you are not looking where you are going then a slip injury is likely. Most of these slips can be avoided by being aware of your surroundings but also wearing sturdy shoes and trying to stick to more stable, less icy grounds to avoid any slip injury claims on an icy day helps.
Falls through doubt
This may sound strange but for those that are accident prone, and know they are, this can cause an accident claim. An accident or fall can be caused or made worse by that person believing they are going to have an accident or that something is going to go wrong. Negativity can be a powerful force and can actually cause a fall injury or worse.
Trip injuries through not concentrating
Sometimes accident prone people can come across as quite ditsy and appear to have their head in the clouds. This means that they may not always be in the real world when walking around, which could cause a trip injury. So, if there is a pothole or exposed cable they may be more likely to trip up on it due to not concentrating on what is right under their nose.
Work related injuries
Accident prone people can and do have mishaps everywhere including the workplace. It may not be a trip, slip or fall, but it could still be a bad enough accident to result in an injury claim.
