Common Types of Accidents Caused by Someone Else’s Negligence
Accidents come in many different forms. With that recognized, there are some types of accidents that are commonly the result of someone else’s negligence. One of the most common types of San Antonio accidents that result from another party’s negligence is an automobile accident. This includes car accidents caused by drunk drivers, motorcycle accidents, commercial truck drivers, distracted driver incidents, and accidents involving pedestrians.
In addition to car accidents, slip and fall accidents caused by the negligence of a third party are also at the top of the list. These accidents are based on a legal concept known as premises liability. What premises liability means is that the party in control of a premise or property must keep it in a reasonably safe condition. For example, a grocery store must take reasonable steps to keep its aisles free of spills that can cause a customer to slip and fall.
Other types of accidents include aviation accidents, railroad or train accidents, drowning accidents fraternity hazing accidents, defective products, and others.
