Most of the accidents that happen at work could have been avoided.
It might be a case that somebody didn't put something away, which then became a trip hazard; there might not have been a sign to indicate that the floor was wet, or insufficient training may have been given for operating machinery.
These types of scenario are all too common in the workplace, and many can be avoided.
Other incidents are just accidents, that couldn't realistically have been avoided.
Industrial injuries such as exposure to asbestos, or loss of hearing due to loud machinery or insufficient ear protection can also result in a case for damages.
