Solicitors in Newcastle 

Start your claim with Accident Line Direct and we can help you find an experienced solicitor in Newcastle 

It is necessary for a successful claim that they are made within three years of the injury occurring in most circumstances. Making your claim as soon as possible will enable your solicitor to help gather useful supporting evidence and witness statements. This evidence will garner support for a claim that incorporates three aspects;

  • You were owed a duty of care (an obligation to your safety and wellbeing)

  • This duty of care was then breached

  • Your resultant injury was directly caused by this breach.


Finding the best solicitor for your compensation claim

Our personal injury solicitors aim to secure the maximum compensation by acting on your behalf to assess the value of your claim, negotiate the relevant paperwork and settle a final amount.

Experienced solicitors will decide whether a No Win No Fee agreement is suitable for your claim by collating supporting evidence that will often include the following;

  • Witnesses to the event

  • Identifying the party at fault

  • Local medical examination


Using this information they will decide whether your claim has a reasonable prospect of success.

Personal Injury claims in Newcastle are varied and exist on a broad spectrum of claim types. Accident Line Direct can assist with the following and much more;


Road Traffic Accidents

Across Great Britain, the number of fatalities reported in Road Traffic Accidents has been gradually declining since 2004 thanks to improved Road Safety Regulations. Statistics in Newcastle however, continue to rise.

Road Traffic Accidents remain one of the major contributors to fatal and serious personal injury. If you were not at fault or even if you were partly at fault for an injury that was caused by a Road Traffic Accident, whether this included being in a vehicle or on the road, then knowledgeable and skilled solicitors that work with Accident Line Direct are able to guide you through the claims process and secure vital compensation in aiding your recovery.


Clinical and medical negligence

Medical negligence, now re-defined as Clinical negligence relates to a breach of the duty of care by your healthcare provider and has strong grounds for compensation.

35% of all clinical negligence claims in England were relating to childbirth and midwifery which lead to an overall cost of £482 million between the years 2012-13 according to NHS data. Clinical negligence is thus not only common but costly.

Compensation following a breach of your duty of care when undertaking medical care is available. If you have experienced negligence from a healthcare provider in Newcastle that you would like to discuss then Accident Line Direct can help
