Barking and Dagenham is an area known as one of the London boroughs. This one is out to the east of London, sitting within the larger Greater London area. Accident claims in Barking and Dagenham do happen occasionally, particularly since the area has a greater population than many others. There are just over 200,000 people living within the larger borough.
Thankfully though, most people who live in the borough will not have any experience of making such claims. Accidents can happen, we all know that, but they rarely happen because a third party caused them. Even when such things do happen, most people get away with no injuries, and count themselves as lucky before moving on. But what if that’s not the case?
Situations that might potentially lead to accident claims in Barking and Dagenham
How many situations can you think of? Well, slips, trips, and falls could happen anywhere you can think of, from work locations to supermarkets, and gyms to residential streets. Road accidents and similar incidents that cause injury to pedestrians, cyclists, and motorcyclists cover another wide range of accidents. Things might also have a slim chance of going wrong at school, or at nursery, if you are wondering about an injury your child has recently sustained.
The key element with all these situations – and indeed other accidents and injuries that might happen – involves the need to determine who was at fault. Even if no one else was around when you suffered an accident, it could still be proven that a third party was negligent. If your employer left you alone to complete a job, but you hadn’t been trained to do it and you were subsequently injured, this would be a good example of how this would work. With so many potential situations and problems to consider, it makes sense that you would want to seek out some legal advice to help you work out if you could make a claim to get some compensation. If someone else caused you to be hurt, there is a chance this could happen.
