Most of us have been clumsy at some point or other in our lives. Who amongst us can put their hand up and say they have never smashed a plate, knocked over a vase or tripped over a large tripod stand?
The consequences can be irritating, emotionally distressing or worse, requiring medical attention and leaving you with an injury and ongoing complications that cause you physical and psychological pain and possibly interfere with your day to day life and work.
A non-fault accident
However, sometimes these incidents are not just down to clumsiness. Sometimes the responsibility or blame for the accident does not lie with you, or with your clumsiness, but with someone else.
To take our third example, you tripped over a large tripod stand, it may well be that this took place in a work or training environment, or a business setting such as a photographer’s studio. In which case it may be that the layout of the room and the location of the tripod put you at risk of tripping, and the accident and consequent injury is not your fault. If you believe this to be the case with you, there may be something you can do to assist with the situation.
