    Accidents in Gateshead


    If you need help after accidents in Gateshead, who are you going to call?

    Well the obvious answer to that is a doctor, but as well as getting your injuries seen to and treated it is also a good idea to find legal help. At Accident Advice Helpline, that’s precisely what we do – helping people get compensation for their injuries and the justice they deserve.

    Why it’s important

    Claiming compensation should always be something you think about. That’s because the money you receive from this – if the claim is successful – can be important in helping you to get back on your feet. The time a claim takes to be settled can vary greatly, so it’s never too soon to look into what your rights might be. Remember the sooner you know how much money you’ll have at your disposal, the sooner you’ll be in a position to decide whether or not you can make a claim.

    How to claim?

    Most claims go through the small claims court. To help you with this it’s a good idea to consult a lawyer, but which one should you go to?

    If you’ve been involved in accidents in Gateshead you might instantly start looking around the local area, but the most important thing to look for is a firm that works with the type of claim you’re working on. Personal injury law is actually a highly specialised environment and different types of accidents may be treated slightly differently.

    Getting advice

    Having access to good honest advice is extremely important. For this you can call up a law firm and spend time looking into the details of your case. If you call Accident Advice helpline you can avoid the danger of having to pay out anything in upfront legal fees.

    Through our 24 hour helpline we’re there to offer help and support regardless of your situation and entirely free of charge.
