Accident solicitor Gateshead


The town of Gateshead lies on the southern bank of the River Tyne, facing Newcastle upon Tyne on the opposite side. Once a hub for heavy industry, then forgotten and run down when heavy industry was replaced by large scale redundancies, Gateshead today presents a very modern picture with many award-winning, landmark buildings and constructions, such as the famous Gateshead Millennium Bridge or the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art.

Gateshead is also the home of the famous Angel of the North, a monumental art installation towering over the landscape and greeting motorists as they drive “oop north” to the Tyne and Wear area.

Industrial accidents

Coal mining had a profound influence on the Tyne and Wear area. Gateshead recorded its first coal mining activity as far back as 1344, but its efforts to produce coal came to an end in 1680, when the lease on the mines ended and fell back to Newcastle’s hands. The supply of coal petered out anyway. Half a century later, iron production had taken over and the firm of Hawks & Co became one of the largest operators in the North of England, supplying the shipbuilding industry with chains and anchors for example.

Workers caught up in industrial accidents in the past, either died there and then or succumbed later to their injuries. Their families would have been left destitute, as there was no scheme in place at that time to provide adequately for accident victims whose employers were at fault. Today, health and safety legislation forces employers to be far more careful with the lives and welfare of their workers, however, sadly there are always some whose greed will outweigh any concerns for their employees’ safety.

If you suffered injuries in an accident at work and that accident was the result of your employer’s negligence, you are entitled to claim compensation, provided that accident happened within the last 3 years. Speak to an accident solicitor in Gateshead about your case.
