What If No One Is at Fault for My Injury?
Not every personal injury claim will result in legal action. However, there are many cases where people falsely believe that no fault lies in the accident that has left them injured. While drunk driving accidents and medical malpractice cases point to the person to blame for the accident and injury, other situations may be more difficult to identify. For example, slip and fall injuries may seem like mere accidents, but upon closer inspection, there is an actual responsibility to be placed. Many instances of this type of accident result from a property owner or business manager who failed to follow safety protocols. Ensuring that their premises are safe in all aspects—dry floors, well-lit stairways, chemical-free environments, etc.—is the responsibility of a building owner. Failure to adhere to these rules could leave someone severely injured or ill.
For example, in cases of natural disaster that cause you injury in your workplace, it may appear as if this act of nature leaves no one at fault for your injuries. However, if the incident is examined more in depth, it may be found that your employer did not adequately equip your building or work environment with the necessary regulations and did not adhere to safety protocols that they were responsible for adhering to.
