The first step that we are going to take in order to be able to analyze in depth the term incident that concerns us now is to determine its etymological origin. In this sense, we should state that it is a word that comes from Latin, and more exactly from the word incidens, which can be translated as “what happens during the development of an issue”.
The one that has that meaning is because the Latin term is composed of the following three clearly differentiated parts: the prefix -in, which is synonymous with "inward"; the verb cadere, which is equivalent to "falling", and finally the suffix -nte, which means "agent."
A incident is what it happens in the course of an issue and that changes its future . The term has its origin in the Latin word incĭdens. For example: "Dr. Scott was heading to the party when a sudden incident altered his plans", “After the incident, the employees returned to the office and continued with their usual activities”, “The bank closed its doors because of an incident in the cashier zone”.
The fight or dispute between two or more people It is also known as an incident: "The party was suspended for incidents in the local gallery", “There were serious incidents in a demonstration that demanded justice for the murder of a minor in Villa Santa María”, “When I tried to enter the stadium, the incidents began and I had to leave”.
At the moment the economic crisis and concretely the measures that are carrying out the governments of the different parties are provoking multitude of incidents all over the world. Thus, for example, in the case of Spain, cuts in health or education have led thousands of people to the streets of cities throughout the country and some of these manifestations, due to the attitude of some individuals who take advantage of the tumults to generate conflicts, there have been incidents of a certain severity.
For him right , an incident is an issue that differs from the main issue of a judgment , but that is related to him. It can be said that the incident is a litigation accessory to the main judicial procedure , which the judge or the court must resolve through an interlocutory sentence or by an order.
The challenge of the evidence, the challenge of the judge or a witness and the request for postponement of the process are some of the incidents that may arise during a trial.
The incident can be resolved flat (When the judge decides without a hearing from the counterparty since the incident has no links to the parties' claims or is late) or prior hearing of the parties .
In addition to all of the above, we would have to underline that within the scope of optics the term in question is also used. Specifically, we talk about what is known as incident lightning. This is a concept that is used to refer to the part of a ray of light that is between the object itself and the place in which it is reflected.
