Accident Types

Risk is an everyday fact of life. Unfortunately, accidents can and do occur – frequently. Although many such accidents are completely unavoidable or unforeseeable, those that stem from an act of negligence are very often subject to compensation.

Clearly, financial reward cannot undo a broken leg or shattered vertebra as much as it cannot bring back the life of a loved one. However, compensation allows the victims and families affected by negligent acts to redress the balance insofar as is legally possible.

In considering negligence and accidents, it is important to stress that there is no definitive list of the types of injuries or acts that can be covered by the law. In short, the law of requires that certain conditions are satisfied before compensation is awarded, which is a process that our fully qualified and professional lawyers will be able to explain when discussing any potential claim. In the broadest terms, however, it is possible to list the various types of claim that are covered by our comprehensive legal service.
