Accidents at Work
Every employer has a duty to look after the health, safety and welfare of their employees, whilst at work. Accidents at work usually occur because employers have not complied with the law. Proper risk assessment is essential in providing a safe working environment. There are specific regulations that employers must comply with, which include such things as suitable equipment, manual handling, work at height, construction work, and substances hazardous to health. We have an experienced team that can help you if you have had an accident at work to ensure that you have the best chance of succeeding with your claim.
The NewLaw Motor Accident team handles thousands of motor accident claims each year. Statistics show that most people injured in a car accident suffer at least a painful whiplash injury, leading to time off work and some discomfort. But for those who are the victims of more serious injuries, the effect on their lives can be devastating, particularly if you do not get the right help and advice from the outset.
Wills, Trusts and Probate
NewLaw’s experienced Wills, Trust & Probate team are on hand to advise on all aspects of estate planning and probate services.
It is important to make sure you have appointed the people that you trust to manage your assets both during your lifetime and after your death. By taking the first step to write a Will you ensure that your assets pass to your loved ones rather than someone you might not have spoken to for years.

Victims of Crime
If you have been the victim of a crime and have sustained an injury, you may be entitled to compensation under the Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme, which is funded by the government. The scheme is devised to go some way to compensating individuals who have suffered physically and/or mentally due to a criminal act. It is recommended that you have a Solicitor acting for you to ensure that you are compensated adequately and fairly. We are aware that often the victim of the crime struggles to deal with the aftermath of an attack, and for this reason we have specialist lawyers to help make the process easier for you.
The NewLaw team can advise on any criminal charges arising from a Road Traffic Accident, from minor offences such as speeding to much more serious offences like causing death by dangerous driving.
We offer representation at interview under caution, whether it be at the police station, your home or our offices. Our expert solicitors will liaise with the police on your behalf and can provide advice and representation to defend criminal charges. We are able to advise on elements of mitigation, where you accept you are guilty of the charges but want to try and reduce your sentence to the minimum that may be imposed. This is especially important if you face being disqualified from driving due to the nature of the offence or because you have accrued more than 11 points on your licence within the last 3 years.Court of Protection
