Anywhere there are a lot of people there will be accidents. Sad, but true. If you have been involved in an accident lately and need an accident solicitor in Kew will have plenty to choose from; the number of visitors that flow through the London Borough is large and there are minor accidents occurring in public places every day.
Things An Accident Solicitor in Kew Deals With
The most common type of accident that personal injury claim solicitors have to deal with is that caused by a motoring accident. Being part of the City of London Kew has more than its fair share of vehicles on the road so bumps occur regularly. But many people suffer trips, slips, and falls either at work or in public places and in a place such as Kew, where people flock in the summer to visit the famous Royal Botanic Gardens and Kew Palace, these are things that occur all too frequently. Types of injury vary from broken bones to bumps cuts and grazes; in short anything that caused a physical injury and affected that persons ability to do their job or tend for their family will be considered for a claim.
The Silent Injury
There is however another category of injury that accident solicitors have to deal with and that is the silent injury. This can be classed as mental or emotional and affects the person’s ability to do their daily job or carry out the most simple task, it can even affect their ability to travel. Emotional and mental injuries are more difficult to assess than physical ones; but if someone has suffered an accident and now finds they cannot drive their car, or travel on public transport, they have as much right to claim as someone with a broken bone. The long term effects of such injuries can be greater as someone could no longer be able to do their job or carry out what we consider to be a normal life. As such they are claims that become more involved and require professional assessments and sometimes therapy.
