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.
If you have been injured or become ill for any reason, it is always good to speak with a lawyer about the conditions of your case. Even if you don't believe that anyone is at fault, it is better to know, especially because many people learn that liability does lie with someone that can be legally charged for their wrong-doings to you. A legal professional is the best person to consult if you are unsure about your injury. You may find out that someone is at fault after all.
