Types of accidents


There are many types of accidents which you can potentially experience on a day to day basis. Car accidents, workplace injuries, tripping while walking down the street or straining a muscle while lifting something, are just a few examples. In most cases these accidents are unavoidable – simply the result of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. But sometimes, you can be the victim of an accident which could have been easily prevented.

Which types of accidents can lead to a lawsuit?

The key to creating a lawsuit is establishing liability. If you fall off a ladder because you were wearing inappropriate shoes, you are unlikely to have a case. However, if you fell from the ladder because one of the rungs was loose, the liability for your accident lies with the manufacturer of the ladder. If you fell off the ladder in your place of work, this too may lead to grounds for legal action as your employers are responsible for your safety as long as you are at work.

What to do if you have a claim for an accident

If you suspect that your accident was due to negligence it is worth considering a claim. Hold on to any evidence which may help your case. For instance, if you were involved in a car accident, take photos of any damage to the vehicle. Write down everything you remember from the accident while it is still fresh, and ask any witnesses to do the same. Finally, no matter what types of accidents you have been involved in, seek legal advice. Even if the issue of liability is not immediately clear, you could be entitled to some compensation.
