Truck accidents: A truck accident can be even more dangerous than a normal vehicle accident. This is because not only is a truck larger in size but also volume causing any accidents that they are involved in to be very dangerous because of the sheer size of the vehicle.

Medical malpractice: We trust doctors with our health, the most important thing to us.

This could be because certain rules and procedures were not followed. There also are instances when patients to hold a doctor is aware, and the operation results in the death of a patient the doctor can be held liable.

An accident in the workplace: When we go to work we expect our employer to make sure the environment we are in us safe for us to perform our contractual duties. Sometimes it can happen that the work environment will not be up to scratch and that could lead to a lot of injuries and even death. Something like a faulty ladder or even asbestos or chemical poisoning can result in the employer being held into account. The amount of compensation that can be claimed is dependant on whether the employer was aware of the fault or not. If the employer was aware of the fault then the compensation that can be received will be far greater.
