What is an accident?
The correct dictionary definition of an accident is an event that happens without warning and is nobody’s fault. The “accidents” that we see on a daily basis can more correctly be described as incidents in which someone is to blame. It is the norm, however, to refer to them as accidents and if you have ever been involved in such an event then you will think of yourself as having been involved in an accident. An accident normally occurs as the result of someone else’s negligence. Negligence can be defined as an irresponsible action that leads to damage and causes suffering. Although it may have been totally unintentional, it may still cause damage to something or someone. If you have been involved in such an event, speak to a solicitor in Lincoln’s Inn Fields and let them decide from the facts that you give them if you are entitled to compensation.
What claims would a solicitor in Lincoln’s Inn Fields deal with?
Common claim types that a solicitor in Lincoln’s Inn Fields would deal with are:
- Slips trips and falls
- Road accidents

- Accidents in a public place
The person who caused the accident will be held responsible and these people could include:

These people would then be seen as negligent in the eyes of the law and would be liable to pay the accident victim an amount of compensation.
What type of damage can occur?
The biggest problem that accident victims suffer from are physical injuries and these may last hours, days, weeks or in extreme cases even years. Some accident victims have injuries from which they never recover. Other accident victims suffer mental illness, including anxiety and depression. Another unwanted after-effect of an accident is financial hardship and a solicitor in Lincoln’s Inn Fields will be able to include in your claim lost earnings, medical expenses and even child care costs. They will also be able to advise you on your return to work and how it should be phased, as well as any additional help you may need to do your job.
