Anyone looking at a map of Greater London would find Kew over to the west of the centre. It is a well-known part of the area, and falls within the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames. Taking up an area of just 1.27 square miles, it is just over seven miles away from Charing Cross. Its population of around 11,400 people means it would not be too challenging to try and find a lawyer in Kew if you ever needed to.
No one ever thinks of finding a lawyer unless there is a good reason to do so. This might occur if you had an accident, for instance, and you knew someone else was the cause of it. Even if you are the most careful person around, there are circumstances in which you could end up being injured because you couldn’t avoid it.
Accidents on the roads
Road accidents are a good example of how things can go wrong even if you do everything correctly. You may be a very careful driver, making sure you stay under the speed limit, giving yourself plenty of time to make manoeuvres and to stay safe on the roads. But even if you do all that and more, there is a chance you could be injured if you encounter someone who does not take the same care as you do.
If someone fails to keep a safe distance behind you, for example, and you stop at traffic lights or need to perform an emergency stop, they could crash into you. This would be their fault. You might also be hurt if another driver comes out of a side road in front of you, and there is no time for you to stop or take evasive action. Since you had the right of way, you have an opportunity to claim for any injuries their actions might leave you with.
There is an alternative to looking for a lawyer in Kew
When you are hurt, your priority will always be to tend to your injuries. If you know another person was at fault for causing them, perhaps in a car accident, as mentioned above, you should go to a treatment centre, NHS accident and emergency department, or to your own GP, depending on how bad your injuries are. Getting medical treatment is vital to ensure you recover well, and to ensure there is evidence of what happened and how you were hurt.
