Barnet is a London borough which was first settled in the 12th century. It contains within its boundaries the areas of High Barnet, or Chipping Barnet. The name ‘Chipping’ shows that there was an old market in the area and in fact there has been a market held in the area since the end of the 12th century. The name Barnet comes from the Old English word, bærnet meaning an area of forest which was burned so that there was a clearing which could be settled. In the 11th century the area was referred to as Barneto and after some changes to this name, it eventually became the Barnet of modern spelling. The area is well-served by rail services.

If you commute to work by train or tube, you may have had an accident either while on the train (or tube) or while on premises belonging to a railway company. An Accident Solicitor in Barnet who specialises in accidents on public transport would be the kind of professional you would need to represent you in such circumstances.
You may have been injured because the train in which you were a passenger collided with another, or there may have been a derailment caused by an obstacle on the railway track. In such a case, you would probably be able to claim compensation from the train’s operators.
Of course, travelling by train is relatively safe and much less stressful that driving, but even so, accidents do occur. The Rail Accident Investigation Branch investigate accidents that occur on trains in the UK. To make a claim, for injuries you might need their accident report if you were injured on a train that was involved in an accident of some kind. You would also need to have received medical attention for your injuries as soon as possible after the accident as your medical report is also required.
