The 5 Most Common Causes For Compensation

Max Alavi, Attorney At Law, Invited To Present Living Trusts & More In Laguna Niguel, California

People choose to claim for personal injury compensation for a wide variety of reasons, chief of which is the pain, suffering and hardship that an injury has caused. It’s a person’s legal right to claim for compensation if they’ve been injured in an accident that wasn’t their fault, and compensation is awarded to those who choose to exercise this right.

But what are the most common causes for compensation?

1. Negligence

The most common claim in a personal injury case is negligence. Negligence can be applied to a wide range of case types, from your road traffic accidents to your accidents in the workplace. Compensation lawyers look to discover who was at fault for an accident, what measures – if any – were not taken to reduce risk and use this to build a negligence case.

2. Road Traffic Accidents

Road traffic accidents are on the increase across Great Britain. This can be attributed to the increased number of vehicles on our roads – and the lack of modernisation to cope. Road traffic accidents can cause a wide variety of injuries, and also a great number of financial hardships. People claim for compensation to aide their recovery and recover costs.

3.  Work Accidents

Accidents in the workplace usually happen because of negligence – but going deeper, they can be caused by defective equipment, improper training, falling objects, lack of PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) or an ignorance to Health and Safety regulations. This can also be accompanied by a loss of earnings, overtime and falling out of favour at work.

4. Industrial Accidents

Potentially the most serious cause for compensation, industrial accidents can be chemical accidents, repetitive strain accidents, and asbestos-related, deafness-related plus much more. If you have been involved in such an accident, compensation lawyers can take on your case to get you the compensation you need to recover without financial worry.

5. Slips, Trips and Falls

Slips, trips and falls can happen anywhere, and they can also be attributed to all of the causes for compensation above. However, they deserve a section of their own, as they are one of the most commonly claimed for accidents. In such cases, compensation lawyers seek to find out who was at fault for the accident and whether any negligence was involved.
