At the heart of most accidents is negligence. There is a section of the English legal system called tort, that has developed to become accident injury law. It is in place to help victims of negligence receive compensation for any injuries that they sustain.
In a nutshell, negligence is when a person, company or organisation has a duty to do something to provide safety for a person, (for example in a work- place), or to ensure a piece of equipment works in a safe fashion. If they don’t do this, then they may be being negligent.
The law surrounding negligence has come a long way since its inception nearly 100 years ago. Companies and individuals can be made to pay large sums of money in compensation if it can be proved that they were negligent.
A reasonably foreseeable accident
If there is a wire strewn across the office floor, this is an accident just waiting to happen. It could have been prevented and if nothing was done to prevent it, then the organisation may have been negligent in some manner or form.
Accident injury law is not based on some random sequence of events, but on sound precedents. It is designed to protect people against what could almost be described as deliberate acts or decisions, knowing that if those actions are taken, individuals will be injured or hurt as a result.
Negligence is a complex piece of English law. So it is a good idea that those who feel they have a case to claim compensation should only do so with the help of experts in accident injury law.
