You’ve had the X-ray in hospital and the verdict is your arm’s broken. You are in severe pain and dread to explain to your boss that the important sales presentation needed by Monday morning won’t get done.
You close your eyes to shut out the sight of your arm bone sticking out a weird angle and poking through your skin, but this only conjures up the image of your employer’s angry red face. Once you’ve had a general anaesthetic and pain killers you will be so drowsy, there’s no way you can prepare statistics about sales expectations in China, France or Israel.

What is a non-fault accident?
The old adage – it takes two to tango? is true in most accident cases but there are circumstances where only one party is to blame. Lack of due care in carrying out duties or wilful negligence to safe money are just two examples. An instructor who was supposed to maintain training equipment but did not do his job because he preferred going to the pub is a negligent person. If such negligence causes an accident, that instructor is liable to pay compensation.
An employer who wants to save money and buys cheap and inadequate equipment or does not keep hazardous materials in proper and safe containers because they cost more will be liable to pay compensation, if an accident occurs or employees fall ill with industrial disease as a result. A drunk driver mounting the curb and mowing over pedestrians or a cyclist racing along on the pavement at 30 miles per hour without looking are also examples of negligence.
