Accident at Work Claims
Jefferies Solicitors wants to ensure that your quality of life does not suffer after being injured at work. Our team of expert solicitors will fight for you to get as much compensation as possible for your specific situation, to help you deal with and recover from the impact that your accident has had on your life. While all industries and job roles face the possibility of injury, some jobs are more likely to incur injury than others. For example, if you work in a factory helping to build machines for Bristol’s aerospace injury, your involvement with heavy machinery could possibly make your job more dangerous than someone’s job in a creative industry. Therefore, it is important that your employer follows regulations and health and safety standards for your specific job role no matter what role that is.

Clinical Negligence Claims
Clinical negligence can occur when a health or medical professional does not uphold the standards of their industry to ensure your safety in their care. There are many different scenarios in which clinical negligence can occur, such as not being told of the risks of a certain surgical procedure prior to the surgical operation or experiencing an injury due to improper practices by your health care professional. Clinical negligence can include cosmetic procedures as well, so even if your injury occurs outside of a typical hospital setting then you could still be elgible to make a claim. No matter the specific scenario, if you were negatively impacted due to negligence on the part of a medical professional, you could be eligible for compensation.

Road Traffic Accidents
In 2018 there were 947 collisions on Bristol’s roads, which highlights how common road traffic accidents can unfortunately be. While most people are thankfully relatively unharmed after a collision, some people may suffer more serious injuries. No matter your level of injury, if you have been involved in a road traffic accident that was not your fault, you may be entitled to compensation to help pay for recovery from your injuries and the impact that they are having on your quality.

Accidents in a Public Place
Bristol is a popular hotspot for music and culture – such as The Bristol City Museum and Art Gallery. When in any public place, such as a museum, concert venue, café or even a train station, you could be involved in an accident that was not your fault. If you suffered an accident in a public place that was due to someone else’s negligence, such as an improperly covered manhole, then you could be able to claim 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 who are local to you in Bristol 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.
