Everyday we go by our daily business being mindful of our actions and safety. These safety habits or routines have been installed in us since we were children, and now many people are teaching their children to follow these rules. These things include not putting our fingers, or anything into electric outputs, looking left, right and left again before we cross the road. We know not to run with scissors and that we should avoid walking on wet floors, and if we do we need to walk slowly and carefully. We take these rules literally every day, and that has allowed us survive up until this point.
Of course accidents happen, that’s why the word exists. Sometimes unfortunate things happen and nothing could have been done to prevent it. However, there are also those accidents that do take place where it actually could have been avoided. This is where problems come in, when the floors become wet and no one knows and someone slipped and fell, or they got injured in other ways that could have been prevented. Many of us have seen articles, news stories or videos online that show how people all around the world are involved in accidents, and many of them could have been preventable.
When To Take Action
In some instances one cannot take action against a person or a place for an accidental slip and fall, especially if there was adequate means of prevention and warning, however, there are cases of negligence and unlawfulness that can, and has caused a person injury. You are able to take legal action against a person or place if they are at fault, they have not done all that they can to prevent such an event from happening, they have acted unlawfully and of course you have sustained serious injury.
