Were you injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault? We’re here to help
Birmingham is the second-largest city in England and therefore, due to population density, there are a large number of accidents claims in the region. If you have been injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you could be entitled to claim compensation for your injuries.
With over 25 years of experience, Jefferies Solicitors have helped numerous clients in Birmingham gain the compensation they deserve. We have helped clients with gaining compensation relating to many different types of accidents, such as dental negligence, accidents at work and accidents in public places like supermarkets.
Our expert team deal with various different types of cases throughout Birmingham, such as:
Accident at Work Claims
Jefferies Solicitors have processed and helped clients throughout Birmingham gain compensation after suffering an injury at work. No matter the specific scenario in which you were injured – whether you work in an office or a warehouse – we can help process your case and gain compensation if you were not at fault.
Birmingham, in particular, has a large manufacturing division in sectors like metal and machinery. Industrial warehouses and factories can become dangerous due to the large amount of machinery engaged in the job. If your employer has failed to follow health and safety regulations and this has resulted in you suffering an injury, you could be entitled to compensation.

Clinical Negligence Claims
Birmingham’s economy relies heavily on the medical industry, with its largest hospital being The Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham. Therefore, it is entirely possible that your clinical negligence claim is regarding dental or medical negligence – such as injury at birth or a surgical accident. However, there are other types of clinical negligence which could occur outside of a hospital or dental setting, such as cosmetic surgery accidents. No matter your accident, if you were injured due to someone else’s negligence you are most likely entitled to compensation.

Accidents in a Public Place
If you have been injured in a public place – such as a supermarket or at a music festival – then you could be owed compensation. Birmingham is well known and praised for hosting different festivals and events such as the Moseley Folk and Arts Festival which is deeply beloved by residents. If you have suffered an injury while at an event or at a public place, you could be entitled to compensation. As long as the accident was not your fault, your claim is most likely viable.

On average, ten people are injured in road traffic collisions in Birmingham every day. If you have been injured in a road traffic accident, you could be eligible for compensation.

What happens after I contact Jefferies Solicitors?
Our experts at Jefferies Solicitors will take some initial details about your case to assess whether you have a valid claim. All initial consultation regarding your claim is free, so even if we do not decide to take on your case or you decide to go with a different law firm you will not be charged. There is a limited of time within which claims can be made, usually three years, so it is important that you get in touch with a legal team as soon as you decide you want to make a claim. As long as the accident or incident was not your fault but due to the negligence actions of another party, you should have a valid claim.
It is important that you keep any evidence relating to your case safe. For example, if you took photos of the accident scene, kept a journal where you detailed your accident/injuries or have medical records relating to your injuries, these pieces of information can become crucial in winning your case. No matter how insignificant you might think a piece of information is, it could be very valuable when applied to your case.
Jefferies Solicitors offer a no win, no fee* service which means that if we do not win your case then you will not be charged fees for using our services. We understand that money can be a barrier for making a claim, therefore we want to ensure that anyone who deserves compensation can get it without fearing a financial loss.
How much compensation can I get?
Every accident and injury is unique and therefore compensation is decided on a case by case basis. The extent of your injuries is the most important factor in determining how much compensation you will be owed. However, compensation also takes into account any financial losses that you might have suffered as a result of your injuries, such as a loss of earnings due to being unable to return to work. Your injuries will be assessed by doctors local to you in Birmingham so that you are not inconvenienced.
Our compensation calculator will give you an indication of how much you might be entitled to based upon your injuries. Jefferies Solicitors will take these different details relating to your injury into account when calculating how much compensation you should be awarded, which will then be put forward to the opposing side and the judge.
