Most common Nuneaton and Bedworth law firm accident claims
Some of the most common types of accident which lead to claims for compensation include:
Road traffic accidents
Road traffic accidents are some of the most common and serious accident types which can leave victims with a number of devastating injuries. Often caused by negligence, if you were to suffer injuries that were someone else’s fault, it may be up to the responsible party to pay compensation to you.
Public transport accidents
Public transport accidents are more common than you may have previously thought, but as the UK has so many transport services running each day, it is inevitable that accidents will occur. If for example, the fault was the driver’s or a fault with the vehicle, the company running the service should be the ones liable for compensation.
Accidents at work
Accidents at work can occur when an employer fails in their duty of care to ensure a safe working environment for employees. Whether this is through proper training, maintenance of work areas and equipment or adhering to health and safety laws, all aspects are important in order to maintain safety. Any failure by the employer in this duty could lead to claims for compensation.
Slips, trips and falls
Accidents of this type occur when pathways are improperly maintained, spills aren’t noted and there are hazardous objects in the way. It is up to the person responsible for maintaining these areas, such as the local council, shop owners etc., to pay compensation for injuries suffered due to a slip, trip or fall.
