When negligence is the cause of an accident injury law has the solution
At the heart of most accidents is negligence and there is a section of the English legal system called tort, that has developed to become accident injury law and it has the solution to negligence.
In a nutshell negligence is when a person or 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 do not 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. Some people say this is unfair however if we look more closely, we can see that at the heart of negligence and accident injury law are three key issues and they are the incident that causes the negligence;
- Reasonably foreseeable.
- There must be a relationship of proximity between the plaintiff and defendant
- In accordance with equity it must be ‘fair, just and reasonable’ to impose liability.
All of these points are important but the one we are going to concentrate on is the first.
The first point; reasonably foreseeable; 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 has been negligent in some manner or form.
Accident injury law is not based on some random sequence of events it is based on sound precedents 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.
