Negligence is a breach of duty or carelessness and if a person has been negligent and caused an injury to another person, this can lead to Bournemouth personal injury claims. If you have been injured in a serious accident that you believe was caused by another person’s negligence, you may have a good case for compensation. However, before you can do this you need to work out if what has happened does constitute negligence or not. Here are some examples of negligence to help you to decide.
Shops and restaurants with wet floors
Any shop owner, restaurant owner or staff member who sees a spill and doesn’t clean it up or mops the floor and doesn’t put down a ‘wet floor’ sign can be considered to have been negligent, so, if you slip and fall you could make a claim against them.
Ignoring the rules of the road
Any driver who drives over the speed limit, ignores signs and traffic signals and so on is thought to be negligent as they are ignoring the rules set out to keep other drivers safe on the road. If you are injured in a road accident caused when a driver was flouting the rules of the road, you should have a good case for compensation against them.
Employers ignoring safety guidelines
Whether these are the official safety guidelines set out for workplaces or further guidelines set out in your contract and in the company’s own rules, if your employer flouts any of these rules and you are injured, you should be able to make a claim for compensation.
