There are so many different ways that accidents happen that it would take far too long to discuss them all. But our accident lawyer in Grangemouth has found there are three in particular that are more common than others:
Slips, trips and falls
These are the most common of all accidents, the government estimating that they are about one third of the 3 million accidents that happen every year in the UK. Mentioning slips, trips and falls conjures up an image of someone perhaps falling over in the street and trying to slink away because they are embarrassed. They might have a bruise or graze, but not much more than that.
In fact slips, trips and falls refers to accidents much more serious than this. Falls from height, trips into moving machinery or slips down stairs are just three examples of how serious they sometimes are, and it does not take much imagination to realise how severely innocent victims could have been injured.
Road traffic accidents
Numerous more road traffic accidents take place than the ones reported to the police. Many of them are minor bumps, in which no one is injured, but last year there were nearly 190,000 accidents that did involve injuries and deaths. Many of these were not the fault of the injured party. Most road traffic accidents are caused by a driver error, and if you are the victim that is injured because of someone else’s mistake, an accident lawyer in Grangemouth may be able to help you claim the compensation you are entitled to.
Accidents at work
Employers have a legal duty to safeguard the health and safety of their employees while they are at work. Most employers take health and safety matters very seriously and do what they should but not all employers comply with the rules and regulations. If you are injured at work because of your employer’s negligence, you will be able to make a personal injury claim against them.
