Injury solicitors in Barking


Barking is in east London, and was once part of Essex. However, as greater London has expanded, it has swallowed up various towns, of which Barking is one. The population was less than 17,000 strong in 1881, but by 1961 this had risen considerably to nearly 73,000. Today it is even more crowded. Many businesses are also here, including the possibility of injury solicitors in Barking.

Barking has a train station that affords easy access to the city of London, particularly as Charing Cross is actually less than nine miles away. Many people commute from the town into the city each weekday. In doing so, they navigate many local roads that lead to and from the main station and bus stops. The town is always busy, but you will see increased traffic and footfall on the streets around the rush hour each day.

Navigating busy roads

Barking is a busy area, as anyone who lives or works there will know. You need to be alert at all times when you are crossing the road as a pedestrian, even if you use proper crossing points to get from one side to the other. Trying to dodge the traffic is bound to end badly eventually.

However, if you do obey all the traffic signals, cross at proper crossings and do everything right, you are still at the mercy of people who are driving and not paying proper attention to the road ahead. A classic example that could result in an injured person looking for injury solicitors in Barking would be if they were hurt because someone was driving while using their mobile phone.

Could you claim in this instance?

It is illegal to use a mobile phone while driving, as injury solicitors in Barking will no doubt tell you. If a driver did not have their eyes on the road and hit you, either by mounting the pavement or shooting through a red light while you were crossing the road ahead of them, you could have a strong chance of winning any compensation claim you decide to make.
