An accident is an unintentional, usually unwelcome event that is not the result of human action. While the term "accident" indicates that no one is to blame, the occurrence could have been caused by hazards that were not recognized or addressed. Most researchers who investigate unintentional injury avoid using the term "accident" and instead concentrate on factors that raise the likelihood of severe injury and factors that lower the incidence and severity of damage. For example, a tree may not have fallen during a windstorm because of humans, but the tree's kind, size, health, position, or inappropriate maintenance may have contributed to the result.
