									An accident is a specific, unexpected, unusual and unintended external action which
occurs in a particular time and place, with no apparent and deliberate cause but with
marked effects. It implies a generally negative outcome which may have been avoided
or prevented had circumstances leading up to the accident been recognized, and acted
upon, prior to its occurrence.
  Experts in the field of injury prevention avoid use of the term 'accident' to describe
events that cause injury in an attempt to highlight the predictable and preventable
nature of most injuries. Such incidents are viewed from the perspective of
epidemiology - predictable and preventable. Preferred words are more descriptive of
the event itself, rather than of its unintended nature (e.g., collision, drowning, fall,
etc.)
  Accidents of particularly common types (auto, fire, etc.) are investigated to identify
how to avoid them in the future. This is sometimes called root cause analysis, but
does not generally apply to accidents that cannot be deterministically predicted. A root
cause of an uncommon and purely random accident may never be identified, and thus
future similar accidents remain "accidental."
  Different types of accident:
  Physical and non-physical
  Physical examples include, e.g., unintended collisions or falls, being injured by
touching something sharp, hot, or electrical, or ingesting poison. Non-physical
examples are, e.g., unintentionally revealing a secret or otherwise saying something
incorrectly, forgetting an appointment, etc.
  By activity
  * Accidents during the execution of work or arising out of it are called work
accidents. * In contrast, leisure-related accidents are mainly sports injuries.
  By vehicle
  * Bike accident * Tram accident * Traffic collision * Sailing ship accidents
  That’s why the reason why your choice of attorney is important is because choosing
the wrong one can result in not getting any form of compensation. Accident cases can
be quite tricky especially during litigation. Remember that before a case gets to court,
several weeks would have elapsed after the accident and a lot of things can go wrong.
Accident lawyers must be able to convince a jury that the events that led to an
accident that occurred several weeks back were due to the fault of the defendant. The
defendant's attorneys will also be making efforts to extricate their client from any
liability. This is where accident lawyers prove their worth. Accident lawyers differ in
terms of experience, skill and results and all these play important roles in determining
whether a victim would be sufficiently compensated, minimally compensated or even
get any compensation at all. An accident lawyer often has to reconstruct the scene of
an accident in addition to securing experts to testify in the case. Other intricacies are
also involved in accident cases and an experienced and skillful attorney knows how to
rightly deploy different tools in getting you a favorable verdict in court. For more
