WHAT IS AN ACCIDENT?
An accident is simply an incident which no-one could have reasonably foreseen and for which no-one should be held responsible. No-one will win a case against someone who they may think is responsible for an injury, if that injury has been caused by an accident.
WHAT IS NEGLIGENCE?
Negligence is defined, in short, by whether you do something which you can reasonably foresee will injure someone else who is likely to be affected by your actions, or your lack of action.
