    Common causes of accidents


    Accidents can happen anywhere and anytime; but we all like to believe that they will never happen to us. Sadly that is seldom the truth and all of us at some time will have the unfortunate experience of suffering an injury or damage that wasn’t our fault. Common causes of accidents impact our lives all too frequently.

    If this has happened to you then there is no need to worry; law firms such as Accident Advice Helpline are experts in their field.  With an endorsement from the consumer champion, Dame Esther Rantzen, our clients know they are in safe hands. All you have to do is take our 30second test to find out if you have a claim then give us a call.

    Slips, trips and falls

    This has got to be one of the most common causes of accidents. Wet floors are the biggest culprits; especially indoors. There are many people who have slipped on something that has been spilled on a floor and found themselves making a claim. The key point to remember before making any claim is that the accident has to be someone else’s fault. Simply falling over is not enough, there has to be blame behind it such as broken paving slab or spilled water.

    Road traffic accidents

    This of course is one of the biggest causes of accidents in the United Kingdom today sometimes with tragic results. If you have been involved in a road traffic accident in the last three years and suffered personal injury as a result then you may be liable to make a claim. If you needed medical attention for any injury as a result of the accident then you are in a good position to make a claim. Remember it has to be someone else’s negligence that caused the accident.

    Sporting injuries are common causes of accidents

    These may not be thought of as accidents, but they are if they are caused by faulty equipment or by improper instruction in their use.  People who use gyms should be receiving proper instruction and advice on the equipment before they begin.

    Common causes of accidents at work

    Those who use machinery in work or who have to handle sharp or hot equipment are always at risk of an accident. Accidents at work range from falls and bumps to actual physical injury from using equipment; lifting is a very common cause of accidents at work especially of lifting too heavy loads.

    Points to remember:

    1. Was the accident not your fault?

    2. Did you suffer an injury as a result?

    3. Did it occur within the last three years?

    If the answer to all the above is yes then give Accident Advice Helpine a call and we may be able to help you.
