Civil Litigation / Personal Injury

We are a long established firm of local solicitors – not claims handlers unlike many advertising in the area of Civil Litigation/Personal Injury claims. This means that from the moment you decide to proceed through Mortons you will have direct contact with the firm handling your claim.

Your case could be funded in a variety of ways including a conditional fee* and we will of course take you through all of the available funding options when you contact us.

Our offices are conveniently situated in the centre of Sunderland and Seaham close to all public transport links and car parks and we have full ground floor access and facilities for clients with mobility difficulties. However, if you are unable to attend our offices, we can arrange to visit you at home.

Our Solicitors have a wealth of experience in all areas of Civil Litigation/Personal Injury claims including but not exclusively:

  • Accidents at work
  • Road Traffic Accidents
  • Slips, Trips and Falls
  • Criminal Injuries Compensation
  • Industrial Disease Claims
  • Debt recovery
  • Breach of Contract
  • Contentious Probate
  • Professional Negligence 

We have considerable experience acting for both Claimants and Defendants. This has shown us that our clients expect knowledgeable, honest advice relating to their claim and furthermore, they expect to deal with a dedicated, qualified Solicitor who will have conduct of their case from start to finish. 

Our Personal injury Solicitor is a member of APIL – The Association of Personal Injury Lawyers.

We are extremely proud that over one third of our instructions (across the entire Practice) are derived from repeat business or recommendation. 

If you choose to instruct us, we will give you our honest opinion about the prospects of your potential claim and assure you of our very best attention at all times. We will endeavour to make the whole process as straight forward as possible.
