    Accident lawyer in Chester-le-Street


    Need help from an accident lawyer in Chester-le-Street? Accident Advice Helpline can help.

    Located in the County of Durham in the north of England, Chester-le-Street dates back to Roman times, when the settlement was known as Concangis. Since Chester-le-Street is located only 13km west of Sunderland and 11km south of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, it is a popular destination for day trippers, who come to visit the three weekly market days.

    Who hasn’t bought what they thought was a bargain and later discovered they got stung with an imitation that falls apart after a day or two of use? Although the old proverbial “you get what you pay for” is probably at the back of every shopper’s mind when they visit market days, it is just too tempting to pass by a cut-price blouse or low-cost DVD.

    Traditional market towns like Chester-le-Street offer generally wonderful fruit and vegetable stalls with amazing arrays of fresh local produce; dairy farms, butchers and bakers often sell their organic wares, while various small holders offer delicious “home-made” soup, burgers and hot dogs.

    Sadly, ever so often a rogue market trader manages to display his counterfeit wares before the market inspector has discovered the offending stall. If you bought designer perfume that turns out to be made from chemicals or DVDs proclaiming to show you the latest blockbuster but are actually blank, you’ll be fuming having wasted money, but apart from your ego and your wallet thankfully nobody will have been hurt.

    However, if you purchased badly made toys that should never be passed to children because their individual small components come off after a gentle tug or if the perfume you bought burns the skin on touch, you can claim compensation from the market trader selling counterfeit goods.

    If the trader who served you food stuffs that are well past their sell-by date, but made to look good with fresh garnish, you can claim compensation if you fell ill with food poisoning.

    Provided your accident was somebody else’s fault and caused by their negligence, you can claim compensation as long as the accident happened within the last 3 years.
