    On accident


    If you have been involved in an accident in the last three years it is hardly going to matter to you whether the incident occurred ‘by accident’ or ‘on accident’ but you may be interested to learn a little about these turns of expression.

    On accident or by accident

    Research suggests that it tends to be younger speakers and speakers of US English who use the term ‘on accident’. English (UK and Australian) speakers prefer the term ‘by accident’. Both expressions have apparently been around forever so it is not possible just to suggest ‘on accident’ is lazy speech. It appears that ‘on accident’ is often confused as the opposite of the term on purpose and this may well be where the mix up occurred originally.

    Are you in need of Compensation Advice?

    Regardless of whether your personal injuries stem from an incident that was by accident or on accident, we at Accident Advice Helpline are here to help you!

    You can claim compensation for any accidents you may have had that were somebody else’s fault. If you have had an injury by accident or on accident in the last three years that was not your fault then you really should think about making a claim. You may have had a road traffic accident, a slip, a trip or a fall, been the victim of medical negligence or be suffering from industrial disease or been one of the many poor unfortunates who had accidents at work. No matter where you had the accident and whether it was by accident or on accident you should talk to us at Accident Advice Helpline. We’ll give you our expert assistance.
