What is the definition of an accident?
At Accident Advice Helpline, along with our ‘no win, no fee’ Marble Arch lawyers we know an accident can take many forms. An accident is something that happens to an individual without them expecting it to. Quite simply an accident is something that can cause you injury without you having the ability to avoid it. There are so many different kinds of accidents that it would be impossible to list them all here. Accidents can be avoided if proper care and attention is taken. This can mean:
- Cleaning up spills
- Making sure loose masonry or debris is removed
- Ensuring items are not stacked too high
- Driving a vehicle in a safe manner
- Making sure walkways, paths and stairways are not cluttered
- Providing adequate lighting
- Making sure walked on surfaces are not broken, cracked or loose
- Making sure that proper training is given
- Ensuring equipment is safe for use and correct training is provided
It really is a never-ending list but the above is an example of the kinds of things that make accidents a likelihood. Accident Advice Helpline and our ‘no win, no fee’ Marble Arch specialists are often asked to deal with assessing the eligibility of compensation claims based on these and a variety of other problems that can arise from poor management, badly maintained areas, or general neglect that should not occur as common practice.
My accident was beyond my control – can I make a ‘no win, no fee’ Marble Arch claim?
We hear this so often. Accidents are often the result of someone else’s negligence or inability to ensure that certain things are done when needed. This can happen in the workplace, public buildings, supermarkets, hospitals, private dwellings, the list is endless. No one goes looking to have an accident and at Accident Advice Helpline along with our ‘no win, no fee’ Marble Arch solicitors, we deal with the fall out from such accidents which includes time lost from work because of injury, the long term effects of injuries and the emotional and psychological trauma that can occur as a result. Accidents are a shock to the system and there are times when this shock to the system can have a long term effect; rendering the injured party unable to carry out normal everyday tasks as they would have before the accident occurred.
