If you’ve had an accident in Newcastle-under-Lyme, then you probably have lots of questions to ask about claiming compensation.

We have also compiled a list of our most frequently asked questions, which you may want to read.
Q. I had a car accident in Newcastle-under-Lyme, but I don’t have personal injury cover on my insurance and the driver who hit me wasn’t insured at all! Can I still claim compensation?
A. Yes. The criteria for claiming compensation for your accident in Newscastle-under- Lyme are that it wasn’t your fault and that it happened within the last three years, so it doesn’t matter where or how that accident happened – the fact is it wasn’t your fault. In this case, it was caused by someone else’s careless driving.
Q. Will I have to attend court? I want to sue my former employer because my accident happened when I was made to use unsafe machinery, but I don’t want to face her in a courtroom.
A. It is possible that you will have to attend court, yes, but our solicitors are very proficient and in the majority of claims get them settled out of court. Hopefully, he or she will be able to do the same for you.
Q. Do your solicitors work under the no win no fee* agreement?
A. Yes, all of our solicitors work under the no win no fee* agreement, so if for any reason your claim is unsuccessful then you won’t have to pay out a penny. But we have 15 years of experience in making successful injury claims, so if we say you’re entitled to compensation that means that we are 100 per cent confident that we can get it for you.
Q. Does it have to be an injury? I got food poisoning after getting a takeaway. I was due to do the catering at a business function the following day and had to cancel. I had to pay someone £1,200 to step in for me and lost a regular client.
A. Yes, you can claim for any illness or injury, however serious, and you will be compensated for any financial losses that the injury or illness caused as well.
Q. How much will I receive?
A. That depends on your accident and the effects it had on you physically, financially and even mentally. Every claim is unique. The quickest way to find out is to use our 30-second compensation calculator online at ww.accidentadvicehelpline.co.uk, which will give you a rough estimate of how much you may be owed.
